M...is for Monastery

A production company gained rare access inside this monastery of cloistered nuns in Toledo, Ohio.
A cast and crew from Detroit spent more than three weeks behind the secluded walls of the Monastery of the Visitation filming for an upcoming movie.
The movie "Leonie" tells the life story of Leonie Martin who overcame numerous struggles to become a Visitation nun.
I think this will be the first real film that shows life inside a religious monastery said the director.The religious order was founded in 1610 in France; and came to Toledo in 1915.

L...is for Light

Artist Dale Chihuly focuses on the element of light in his glass art.
Glass is one of the few materials that light goes through causing the colors to be intense.
In any setting the color , form, and light unite to create something magical.
Dale Chihuly has created a unique thing: abstract art accepted by people not in the art world.
