After the fair was over, we still had almost a week to enjoy San Francisco. One highlight was spending a day in Golden Gate Park and visiting the amazing De Young Museum. The day was perfect— finally some overcast weather, chilly enough to need jackets (!!) and sooo foggy and lovely in the park. The museum itself looked like a borg cube, or a dreadnought rising out of the mist and trees. Spooky and great.
Ed Ruscha’s piece A Particular Kind of Heaven was down, so I didn’t get to see it, but I did make some other great discoveries like Richard Diebenkorn and got to see several works by Robert Motherwell, a favourite.
What is your particular kind of heaven?
Mine is on the horizon: The leaves changing colour, cooler temperatures, wool sweaters, school!, coffee and long autumnal walks. Now that I have wheels, I hope I can spend more of this Fall out of the city, where I best belong.
