I have two weeks to go on this working holiday. I had to do a mental check that I’ve seen and done all the things on my list. It is hard in this city to knock off everything but today I felt like seeing some art. Old school, beautiful sculptures, fine antiquities, you know, lots of marble, lots of mosaiics, lots of beautiful art. The Bode Museum on Museum Island beckoned me. I tell you what, a couple of hours in such a place is so inspiring and restorative, creatively speaking. I just loved the whole building, as well as the artworks themselves. Lovely. There was a family there with two young girls and the father was very earnestly describing things to them. How lucky are those girls to grow up in this way? So, so lucky. I was blessed today…I even walked there from my house. No kidding, true story.
