So far I have found the time to record THREE Youtube videos. Ask me how many I have actually posted on……NONE OF THEM. If you know me, I am pretty amiable but I consider myself an introvert. I do suppose this explains why I love photography and writing so much – I don’t have to say anything OUT LOUD. After watching my quick clips I realize now I am much more eloquent at writing. Written passages and photographs really can speak for themselves and allow others to interpret the subject however they wish. Big safety net there, ay? But maybe this will be good practice to become a better speaker?! Who knows?! Just for fun, here are screenshots of the three videos. The dog has made an appearance more than once! I am not Italian but talk with my hands A LOT! And as for Youtube etiquette – do you look right into the camera the whole time?! One almost needs to take a class called Youtube 101! Until then, I shall try and improve!


M is for Museum

I have said it before and I will say it again – a day at the museum is time well spent. My friend P & I made a special trip to the Peabody Essex Museum to see the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit. It was awesome. The exhibit featured her clothing, shoes, a few paintings and photographs of her by many photographers including her husband Alfred Stiegltiz. I will admit, I was familiar only with her very famous paintings. I learned lots about O’Keeffe and she was pretty remarkable!!


We made a loop around the rest of the museum (some parts were under construction, unfortunately) but still we had a great time. There was a special PLAY exhibit there which lead us into a room filled with pink balloons. Six adults at time enter a sea of pink balloons. Even as an adult I was filled with joy walking through hundreds if not thousands of these balloons. It certainly heightens ones senses. What a day.
