Interstellar Adventures

A whole month already?

Yep. One month of dating Nick. 🙂 And I’d have to say things are going pretty well so far.

Last night we went to the Dallas Museum of Art. On Thursday nights they stay open till 9 pm, and between 5 pm & 9 pm admission is free. Even to the special exhibits. Plus, they have live jazz music in the Atrium Cafe. I had some Spicy Shrimp Quesadillas for dinner. They were yummy. You have to check out the Concentrations 47: Jim Lambie, Thirteenth Floor Elevator exhibit. It was so super cool. I think this was Nick’s favorite part. You can even see pictures of how they installed it, step by step. I can’t imagine that they’re just going to rip this up at the end of the exhibit, but I’m afraid they will.

My favorite piece was this. I’m not usually into this type of ‘art’, but this just took my breath away. It was in a room all by itself, with no lights. The only light came from the LED numbers flashing on the piece. It was a series of LED counter displays. The numbers from 1 to 9 would run through, some very, very slow, others very rapidly. All at their own pace. Some would go dark for a bit, then re-light and resume their count. I can’t describe the feeling it gave me, but I stood in front of it, staring in wonder for quite some time.

If you can, take the time to go to a museum soon. They are wonderful places. Even if you’re not an ‘art’ person. Challenge yourself to do it.

After the museum, we went to Cafe Brazil for some coffee and cinnamon toast. I love just being able to sit and sip coffee and talk and people-watch.

  3. I love going to art museums too. Kind of like stepping into another world, gives a whole new perspective. Even if the art sucks, they’re great for people watching!

    Happy one month!

  7. You better be careful, Lass, if your feet get any higher off the ground, you’ll float away! 😉

    I love museums, especially science or history museums. I can tolerate art museums, although I wouldn’t get nearly as much of the artistic nuance out of them as I would, like, the Smithsonian.
