What I love about the public library

• it's so quiet I can hear myself think
• the Art section is huge!
• all the flat surfaces are clear of clutter
• I feel like I'm absorbing knowledge just sitting next to so many books
• I do still like the feel of a book in my hand and the aged scent of its pages...
• A verse from a song I used to play for my kids comes to mind "teacher takes us off to the moon for a closer look.... We don't have to go very far, it's right there in a book..."
• hear is what I'm 'reading'...it's a really cool book

Milwaukee,WI Art Museum ~ Robert Henri

Traveling for a family wedding.... had some time to kill before our return flight so stopped at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The architecture of the building alone is worth a visit to see. Inside contains such a broad collection of art. I was excited to see three pieces by one of my favorite oil painters, Robert Henri.
