We'd planned a hard hike but decided instead to Metro downtown, walk around, go see the just reopened East Wing of the National Gallery of Art. Earthgirl and I grew up in MOCO, we live three miles from DC, it's our home field museum, it's been closed for three years, we wanted to see what's new. Well, this:
Red Dance, by Kevin Young, slayed me and Earthgirl, and this:
Red Rose Cantata, by Alma Thomas, slayed Earthgirl and me. We discovered we'd both stood in front of each for minutes - we hike ahead or behind sometimes when hiking.
I liked this far more than Earthgirl:
That's only 1/4th of Alfred Jensen's Twelve Events in a Dual Universe.
It's fascinating - as my eyes get worse I see red better. There is no doubt a physical explanation, though I like to think red's paying me back for years of neglect.
Best date I've been on in months.
