National Art

Although most of downtown DC was overrun with visitors for the annual Pro-Life march on Monday, the National Gallery of Art was pleasantly empty. I met my Minnesota friends Emily and Nathan Carroll for an afternoon of urban exploring and we wandered through many hundreds of years of art and sculpture. I found myself drawn to the huge old landscapes more than usual, imagining the world before paved roads and vacation condos interrupted pristine shorelines and mountain valleys.

  1. I like the muted colors of the art gallery. The stairway is cool – reminds me a tiny bit of “rider” from way back when only totally different. I am really glad you were able to go to DC and meet up with your friends – what a treat! Ya gotta love the train system out there.
