HIGH MESA

SILVIA’S TRAIL AND SCULPTURE ————-

It was hard to miss Silvia’s trail marker along the highway, once you knew it was there. It took three muscular guys to lift the steel trinity sculpture off the truck and install it on the ground spikes. It would be there for awhile. It was an unauthorized placement, but who’s going to put that much effort into removing the artwork, plus it was striking, reflecting the blue sky. It meant more to Silvia than just a steel art triangle, it pointed the way to a special trail starting behind the top point. Only she and anyone she told would know it pointed to a spiritual place about a mile into the piñon and juniper trees. The trail was marked with small piles of rock every fifty feet or so. She had been on a hike five years earlier, just wandering on the high mesa when a brilliant light stopped her. The experience is what stimulated the direction of her steel geometric artwork. She felt the presence of God. She felt the “human side and precision side” of God, which led to the sculpture. She returned many times before she told her friends, each time God impressed her with a shape. The area was in a recess and she was planning on creating a larger steel sculpture and have a helicopter fly it to the location. I wonder how many people speed past this steel sculpture on the high mesa without even seeing it?
