Where I went:
Metropolitan Museum of Art: “Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence” I love the Impressionist movement. I love the colors, I love the way things are depicted, I just love to look at the paintings. So the new Met show was sort of perfect for me. It was hard for me to find a favorite work, but I’m going with Vincent Van Gogh- Iris’s
Thomas Cole’s Journey: Atlantic Crossings. My Husband loves landscapes, so this was a win/win again.
What I Listened to:
Justin Timberlake- “Man of the Woods”
“Pretty Woman” soundtrack
“Kiss me Kate” soundtrack
Cigarettes After Sex
What I Watched
“Love, Simon” Love, this movie
Spring Baking Championship
What I did:
Leila Heller Gallery “NDD Immersion: Part I of the Women’s Trilogy Project Rachel Lee Hovnanian” This is a really cool installation/immersion (I think that’s what you would call it) piece where you enter a room set up to be like the woods at night, including faux stars and campfire, and sounds of crickets chirping, and you carry a lantern in as you go into the room one person at a time. Catch? They lock up your cell phone. You’re supposed to experience it without distraction.
Snapchat Virtual Easter Egg Hunt: Spurred on by my daughter, we did an egg hunt circa 2018. We looked at a snapchat map of where virtual eggs were hidden, and we walked around the city looking for them. I know- sort of the exact opposite of the other thing I did this week…but really, really fun!!
What I’m Reading:
“The Secret Adversary” Agatha Christie (yes- part of Jay’s Agatha Christieathon)
Random Question: (getrandomthings.com)
Who would you want to be stranded on a desert island with? Gilligan, the Professor, Mary Ann, Ginger, Mr. and Mrs. Howell and the Skipper (though the skipper is the one that got us on the island….)
Side Note: I will be away this coming week. College visits. But never fear! I’ve written in advance so you will not miss my varied and random thoughts! Have a great week everyone!
Clarification: In my post “Act Your Age”, I used the term pop culture. I did not really mean pop culture- it was a poor word choice. In my head, I was thinking about something specific. In NYC, there is a Broadway show called “Hamilton”. In you live in the NYC area, it’s almost impossible to not know about this show. The person I was referring to in the blog had never heard of “Hamilton”. I thought this was beyond odd.
