Taliesin transports you to another place. It has a mysterious quality in the way it is built into the landscape, but it is stories of what kind of life was lived in such a place that fascinated me. Built for a woman who was not Wright’s wife, suffering through crazed murders and two fires, a setting for unusual programs of spiritual gurus, all made for a place that seemed far removed from south-central Wisconsin. The art all around from Asia also made it seem strange. Not unsettling, but unusual in a major way. Taliesin seemed like an elaborate stage set for a mystery play that went on for decades and now I could walk around, see back stage, and be intrigued by it all.
