I had the most unique experience today. I have been reading a fantastic book by the same auther as The Historian, one of my favorite books ever. It's called The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova.
Her writing style pulls you in so deeply that all I could think about as I read it is how much I loved Art History. The book talks about a modern day painter and goes back to Impressionists and other era's of art. The last few days I've really felt like the best way to really enjoy this book would be to go to the Art Museum and sit and read there.
This morning I got up and decided that's what I had to do. I can't begin to describe what it felt like to read the words about Monet's use of light and glance over at one and see it for myself. It was absolutely amazing. I really felt like I was a part of the book. I've never had that experience before.
I just had to write it down, even though I am not doing the moment justice!
