I took my first online test today for my ORT 100 Orientation Course while sitting in a cozy coffeeshop. I scored 100/100. It was the atmosphere I am positive. I am now working on an essay for ORT 100 that is due next. I am to "construct an essay that details a practice related to living a natural health lifestyle and explains how you employ it in your own life path." More than the content, I will be graded on the use of an academic essay format that includes a thesis statement supported by paragraphs with sub-points and a conclusion. Oh, yeah, I can do this, but maybe some inspiration from Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial might help.
Many changes have occurred at the monument since we visited years ago when our grown daughters were little. The architect responsible for the designing the impressive entry, amphitheater, walkways allowing a closeup view of the sculptures and access to the Sculptor's Studio, as wall as a facility housing a museum, book store, restaurant, and gift shop should be commended for envisioning a tribute fitting the grandeur of Lincoln Borglum's work.
The detail in Mr. Borglum's sculptures is indescribably impressive. Look at President Roosevelt's spectacles!
I liked how this view from inside a cave along the walkway at the base of the scupltures framed Presidents Washington and Jefferson and,
outside the park, President Washington's profile was one final visual to tuck away as a memory of our afternoon at Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota.
