On Friday I took the girls to San Francisco to see the Dale Chihuly exhibit at the deYoung muesum.
Two little tangents...
1. Hey Mother Nature, pay attention! I'm sick of you giving me beautiful warm sunny days in San Francisco when I visit. I want fog and chilly weather, especially in the summer time when I go there to cool off. I spend way too much in gas and paying the toll on the Bay Bridge to get warm weather. I expect fog and chilly weather.
2. Dear George W. Bush, the No Child Left Behind Act sucks donkey balls. My kids are data bulimics. They chew and swallow test information just to spit it back up again. Undigested and without absorbing the nutrients. Every kid needs to know there are other things, like art and music in this world. I can take them to museums and teach them what little I know, but what about the parents who don't have the means or knowledge about this kind of stuff? Where does that leave them?
Okay done. Chihuly was awesome and inspiring. To take glass and to twist, mold, and stretch it like that was breathtaking and fun. Art at it's best. Nancy called the first picture "Willie Wonka".
