Back on track.

I'm frustrated, I had to get out of my pj's to come down into the lobby to do the blog….. It's interesting though, as a people watcher I could write a page…..!!!

The Internet in the room just doesn't cut it…..and I can't add a gallery of photos at this time.

24 hours makes a huge difference in the life of a Traveler.

Thank goodness my brain is back to normal, the fog has cleared and I've put in a pretty full day ….. just as well as I leave for Mexico tomorrow… a 6.00 am start.

I spent the day at the Getty Museum today…. many of you will remember my excitement when I visited last year.

The season is different, the light brighter and clearer, the photos are different but the ambiance is stupendous.


When I was 10 years old I haunted our little local library and took out all the books I could on art.


I  poured over the art of the Dutch Masters, I got excited at the art of Rembrandt  and it occurred to me that here I am 50 years later viewing some of those paintings…


Today I had the opportunity to  look  over medieval manuscripts, and  I learned how sculptures were constructed.

Teaching Quilting Internationally has given me the opportunity to visit the best galleries in the world.

Last year, the inspiration for Rhino X 2 birthed after a visit to the Getty Museum.

Today I found inspiration everywhere, the garden, the architecture, the art work, the writing.

Will this become a quilt?


I took 100's of photos and I wish I could share them with you… another day.

Just wonderful.

    How fortunate are you that the stuff of your childhood dreams has become a part of your adult reality?
    I also love the water over the pavers photo. If not a quilt I could see elements of it appearing in a quilt somewhere.

    Oooo, I’m jealous. I heard about that exhibit at the Getty. NPR had a nice story on it. Love the water photo.

    The Getty was a great experience.

    Chris, its a reminder that experiences encountered are not often forgotten… they remain in our subconscious for a long time and just pop out to surprise us a just the right time.
