Delacroix's Liberté, Dinkelspiel Auditorium
Preface: I have walked around Stanford's Lake Lagunita many times with friends. It takes about half an hour to walk around this dried up Lake. On Friday, July 16, Rudy and I walked around the Lake in 20 minutes, since we had to rush to Stanford Theatre to see two Gary Cooper movies. As I was in no rush today, an old friend and I took a leisurely stroll around the Lake. I noticed more beautiful California Live Oaks this time, and took photos of them. We went off the main trail that led to the Stanford Golf Course. Along the way we found several golf balls and an owl's feather. After our hour and half walk, my friend went home while I headed for Green Library. I noticed a color charcoal sketch on a cement railing near Dinkelspiel Auditorium (left). It was Delacroix's Liberté honoring Bastille Day four days earlier. The Sun was shining brightly at 4:30 pm on the sculptures in front of the Bing Wing Entrance to the Green Library. I took photos of them before going to the Classics Room, and spent four hours composing the Notes to a recent poem "Aumnivore".
