Walking and Thinking


Thank goodness the weather's cooled off.
We're back to a layer of clouds in the morning
and sunny skies in the afternoon.

It's a much more agreeable temperature
for talking walks along the harbor

and admiring the great view of the mountain.

And walking's a perfect thing to do
while mulling over all the choices of classes
available at ArtFest 2010.

The schedule was posted around midnight.

I've already reserved my stay at my cousin Jenny's
guest cottage. It's way more cozy than the dorms.

Woo hoo!

What's got you excited today?

p.s. For what it's worth,
here are my movie recommendations for this weekend
if you can find them:

Moon
Every Little Step

I'm going to try to see
500 Days of Summer
and
Herb and Dorothy
too.

I saw Herb & Dorothy this afternoon. I'd say you've really got to be either a total art junkie or a documentary fiend to truly appreciate 90 minutes of this. Herb & Dorothy Vogel collected avant-garde art from the 60s onward on the salary of a librarian in Brooklyn (Dorothy) and a postal worker (Herb). They amassed an astonishing collection and in an amazing act of altruism, donated the collection (that's right: donated) to the National Gallery of Art. The piece was too long and a bit amateurish, but still the story is fascinating.

Hello Meri

that mountain sits at your back door like a protective God watching down over the city.

Happy days

That mountain sitting in the background makes for a great picture. It's been somewhat warmer these last few days here but still nice. Hope all is well. Have a great day.

I like the picture of all the boats. Today, I'm excited about getting my carpets cleaned tomorrow. I know, not much to get excited about, but if you only knew how bad they need it.
