“Hey, I just have to tell you, I looked at the DMV website yesterday, and it was really helpful. It told me everything I needed to know about renewing my driver’s license. Very detailed and easy to follow.”
“Wow. We should post your picture on the wall with a quote. Most people just complain.”

We had an excellent docent at the NC Museum of Art today. He suggested that on each visit to the museum one look at the art through a different filter. Look at how portraiture changes through the years, look at how artists employ perspective over time, look at the use of light and shadow.
For example, today we viewed several depictions of the Madonna.
Now, please let it be said that I am no expert on art history or the Madonna, so my descriptions may be imprecise, but you get the gist of it.
I love to visit the art museum and revisit familiar art. I found this an excellent suggestion to enhance understanding and enjoyment over time.
A mindfulness exercise, yes? 🙂
Raleigh highs have been in the 70s the past few days—25 degrees above normal for this time of year, and the air is damp. On the way home from dinner last night, I saw how wet the pavement was and, startled, asked my husband if it had rained while we were out or if it was just condensation.
Condensation. The bricks were weeping.
When I got in the house, I realized the extra moisture had given my normally smooth, sleek, and (let’s admit it) sometimes downright flat and staticky hair body and bend.
