        Travel from the literal into the fictional -- from original art in various media, an ordinary photocopy, commemorating the fleeting transience of life's passing parade, as perhaps suggested in the original 1953 Hollywood production, Brigadoon, the fictional Scottish Highland village appearing now and then at the whim of every now-you-see-it, now-you-don't 100-year period -- "...out of the Highland mist" -- and, as perhaps suggested in the landscape of the Arcadia Valley area here--"Missouri's Brigadoon"-- home to the state's highest summit, Taum Sauk Lookout (at 1800 feet)--compare with Scotland's highest, Ben Nevis, at 4400 feet above sea level.
