According to my husband I have been slightly edgy lately. I would like to say something nasty in response, but that would just prove his point. So instead I need to find a way to relax.
For me, visiting a museum is an ideal escape. While I am not an artist myself (I tried learning to draw, but gave up when I wasn’t daVinci after 3 hours), many members of my family are. Also my mother helped to foster a love and appreciation of art in me from a young age. As an adult I like to go to museums and exhale. Fortunately (for both Lukus and myself), Los Angeles offers several locations where I can do just that.
In addition to visiting my local museums, taking in art is also one of my favorite travel activities. A fantastic example is the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France. This museum houses predominately art by impressionists and post-impressionists and the exhibits are phenomenal. However, what makes Musée d’Orsay especially brilliant and magical is that it is located inside of a railroad station built around the turn of the 20th Century. Sigh. The light; the space; the architectural details; the way the art is displayed: heavenly.
So, while I can’t go to Paris right now, I can still ogle some photos of this beautiful Museum.
