It looks like InnerRealm Designs had a sweet Valentine from The ALS Walk! Well, we love you guys back, and we love all the hard work that you do to help people with ALS, and the awareness that you create!
February is here and it is not as cold as it should be! I love the Spring don’t get me wrong, but I really like having a winter to enjoy too! Busting out the boots, scarves, and fun wooly hats is something I look forward to…I happen to enjoy fall/winter fashion. We may only have a couple of weeks left of the winter, if the weather keeps up…but I will take what I can get of the lack luster winter thrill!
For some reason the chill stays in the air…hop over to The Philadelphia Museum of Art and see The Van Gogh exhibit. It is amazing, inspiring, and moving. I have seen Van Gogh’s work before, but never all these pieces in one room…I also recommend getting the audio tour, I took so much away from this exhibit with the stories behind the particular works.
I won’t spoil it for you, but there are some pieces that you can see the mental anguish and absolute joy…pre medication and post medication during his stay at a mental hospital in France. There is something to be said about seeing a glimpse of someone’s life…from their perspective…and then using your own involuntary thoughts/experiences while you contemplate their work. Some people just see color and texture on a canvas, whereas I tend to feel brushstrokes and color. Sounds weird, but I challenge you to paint something on a very happy day, then paint something when you are angry or sad…you will then see what I am talking about.
This exhibit is a must see for everyone!
