old style drama

we went to the state museum of art. the kids loved that old, classic art. the drama, the emotions, the stories to be told. especially the warrior defending himself from an angry panther. quite interesting to see how their view point changed. first they felt anxious for the man, but as we looked closer and dicovered that he'd taken the panther cub, the sympathy moved towards the animals. much to talk about there. the sleeping guy was fascinating too, despite the lack of action. what had he been looking at, and was he really sleeping?


  1. I LOVE to observe kids observing art. Their reactions are pure, no taint of what they SHOULD be thinking or appreciating!

  2. That looks like a great museum! I love to go to a museum.

  3. What a treat this is! Wonderful place to be and hearing about your kids was so cute.
