"I do not at all understand the mystery of grace—only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us."
~ Anne Lamott
What does Loveland have besides such a memorable name? An active art community and foundries.
A combination which leads the local DQ (Dairy Queen) on the main drive through town to feature over-sized mementos in a parking lot, including fisherman and snowboarder, their muscles memorialized in bronze.
For me, art is synonymous with grace. It signifies beauty we can never forget. Like this sculpture garden we happened upon only because we were early to the Denver are for a flight home from Cheyenne, Wyoming.

THE ACTOR, Bronze by Dee Clements
With a 136 sculptures currently on public display, I have hungered to return. To feel the uplifting improbability of what is possible in this life when we forget what we want isn't possible.
In a lifetime, mistakes will be made. But if we learn and humbly accept help, the Almighty allows us to recast mere metal into marvels.
