REBLOG 2008-11-17 The Guggenheim and thoughts on art…

On Friday, I took my good friend Chris who was visiting from my hometown to the Guggenheim Museum. On Fridays you get to pay what you want (in our case $5 each) instead of the full $18 admission. At the Guggenheim you can view works from such Masters as Picasso, Renoir, Degas and many, many more. There are also temporary exhibits that usually last a few months. In one instance of temporary exhibits, you will find one photographer named Catherine Opie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_Opie). []

#48in48

Today is my birthday and I have one question – why wait until a round number to celebrate in a big way?  If it ends in a five or a zero, we tend to make a big deal of it.  My thought, you’re only 48 once so I might as well live it up!

Pre-Bridge Day 5k

I am looking forward to this race quite a bit.  However, I am severely under-prepared.  I have a mantra: “I never claimed to be fast but I am determined to finish.”  That has been a common theme for me throughout all of the races in which I have participated. This one will be no different. Dad died. There. I typed it. He died.  I now live in a world where neither Parent is present in real-form.  ((inhale. exhale.))  My feelings are raw []

Movie: Movies In A Cave: The Goonies at Cascade Cave (KY)

Seeing The Goonies in Cascade Cave (part of Carter Caves in Carter County Kentucky) started by seeing an event notification on Facebook. A number of my adventures start that way.  I will click “interested” and as the reminders come in I evaluate my interest and proximity to the event.  If the stars align, I go all in. The stars aligned with this event and I am so pleased.  Friends of Carter Caves set up the event.  Cascade Cave is one of a number []
