It arrived on my birthday: A letter from the School at the Museum of Fine Arts informing me of their offer of admission to the post-baccalaureate program for Fall 2017! What a wonderful gift! Carol and I were two days away from beginning our Iceland adventure, so the timing could not have been better. A thrill and a renewed sense of purpose and energy overcame me over the following days. It carried over well into our vacation, as I shot over 3000 images in Iceland in two weeks. The light and landscapes of Iceland are inspiring, and I did my best to capture a flavor of the country, which we circumnavigated on the ring road. A trip of over 800 miles if you drive it straight, but for us it was closer to 1400 miles with the various side trips and mini-detours. An early revelation - the gorgeous purples radiating from the fields of lupine are not a welcome sight for the locals, as they know that these plants are invasive, and threatening the native mosses which grow on the lava fields. Sad!
