Here are the last of my New Orleans pictures. The New Orleans Museum of Art is really a fabulous museum. They're open late on Friday night, had a pianist and a singer, sold drinks in the lobby and had a fair number of people there. You can get right up close to the works, there were no crowds by the art (there were by the piano) and they had a lot of really great stuff including this Modigliano that I took for Terry who really likes him and the de Largilliere below that I just loved. I had never heard of him before, but something about the self-portrait really speaks to me.
|I didn't see a security guard in the museum the whole time we were there.|
|I love how informal this guy looks and feel like he is about to start saying something to me about the canvas behind him that he is gesturing to.|
My other happiness for today is that I managed to get myself out on the shoulder of the road for 5K today. My speed is about the same as pre-leukemia even though I had to walk a couple times because I got tuckered out. I think this means that overall I might have somehow sped up! Perhaps those blasts were weighing me down.
I am so thankful that I can run. I am hopeful for more running soon. I am hopeful for you to be able to engage in your favorite outdoor activities too.
