Cezanne and Beyond

Someone asked me why I do not blog as much as I once did. The answer is pretty simple. I just do not do as much as I once did. My life has fallen into a wonderfully comfortable routine with just a dash of interesting adventures every couple weeks. I was reflecting on who I was when I first started the blog and things have changed.

However, I won't stop blogging. It will just be less often.

Last week, I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to take in the latest exhibit called Cezanne and Beyond. Out of the exhibitions that have come to the museum since living here, it was my favorite. It shared the elements and importance of Cezanne in the lives of other artists and his influence on the great artists of modern art. Taking a Cezanne piece and placed it next to a Mondrian or Matisse, the museum described the influence of the master Cezanne to these artists. I loved it. It probably had something to do with all of the Matisse in the exhibit too. He's one of my favorites. If the exhibit comes to an art museum near you, take it in.

Star Trek

I have never been what one would call a Star Trek fan, but I married one. Surprisingly, I have seen most of the Star Trek movies. However, when I watch the television series, they might as well be speaking another language. I have no idea what they are talking about most of the time. All I do is ask, "Are they the bad guys, Tim?" He is so patient and answers with a simple yes or no.

So, I am sure that I will see the new Star Trek movie soon. Look at Spock. With that front bowl cut and the slanty eyebrows, I still think he is kind of handsome. This reveals nothing that I have not known for years. I like nerds.

Saturday Afternoon

Saturday afternoons can be a big win or a big loss. Today, it is gray and on the edge of rain. We decided to lay low and watch television. Today, the big win was finding What's Eating Gilbert Grape on cable. I am not the kind of girl who watches movies over and over again, but I love this movie. If you haven't seen it, put it in the netflix queue.

I think I have written about this movie before on the blog.
