I haven’t been able to write much lately – I think it’s been part of recovering from a semester’s worth of life 🙂
I have decided to use my blog to write whenever I think of a particular moment, story, verse – whenever I feel inspired, shall we say.
So to start off, I would like to tell you about my favorite museum.
We went on free museum entrance day. We waited in a very long line but it was oh so worth it.
I love art. I love museums. But I have never been as struck with emotion as I was when I entered the exhibit featuring some of my favorite Monet paintings. And the Little Dancer by Edgar Degas.
Being named Lily, I have always felt a special connection with Monet’s lily pond series. I’ve seen pictures of them my whole life. But to see them in person? I actually teared up.
When I was a little girl I read a book about the Little Dancer. To see it in person was fantastic.
Art is moving. I was moved. I wanted to stay in that gallery for a very long time and take in the beauty.
