Lexington, KY, the Horse Capital of the World is more then a city devoted to the horse, magnificent horse farms and Keeneland (more than just a racetrack; for many people it is a way of life, an incomparable life style); there is also a fierce love for sports, although basketball seems to dominate, a proud history, beautifully preserved historic buildings and a lavish use of statuary graces this city.
In the summer, flowers tumble from carefully tended hanging baskets; water gushes, spews and tumbles from sparkling fountains. I fell in love with this city when first I saw it nine years ago.
The young girl who posed for this sculpture lived not far from the site of this fountain. She has long since grown up, aged and passed on, but she still romps in the fountain with her friend, both of them forever young.
This is one of my favoite homes in the historic downtown area.
