The Wall Street Journal was free on Tuesday, for whatever reason, and I went to straight to the Lifestyle stuff. There was an article about how Christo was doing without Jeanne-Claude (grim), including this beautiful photo of them. Their story of life as lovers-collaborators is always inspring to me.

We have a print of their as-yet unfinished project of covering the Arkansas River in Colorado with fabric. It might sound sad to look at the print, an unfulfilled and now possibly doomed project, but I love it because the detail and span in the drawing is a reminder of how powerfully they dreamed things into being before anyone could even imagine them or believe they could happen.
