It all seems so long ago, even though it was only last week! Boy, I sure would love to live in a place where I could experience museums of that quality on a regular basis. Just like cold weather, art makes me feel smarter. And happier, too. But at least we were able to make a short visit to New York City and, what is more, one that I have some documentary assistance in recalling.
