It’s All in How You See It

Day 4 in New York

It was my last full day to sight see. Lain and I went to  the New Museum. Most of the exhibits there I didn’t get. But I did love the unbelievably colorful bird sculptures there that were created by Nathalie Djurberg. There were eighty sculptures total. I didn’t take any photos because I never know how museums feel about that sort of thing and there were no rules posted to guide me. I know… way too cautious.

But the real art was found when I visited my sons world, his home world. Not a place I exactly fit in. No, more of a place where a mother could worry, and yet I saw…

Line and angles

Shadow and light

Close up, blurred through a window
And far away, viewed through a crack

Color and monotone
An illusion of modern and aged

A view that you can see as ugly
Or colorful

You can see a blessing
Or a blight

It’s up to you

  1. Yep, it’s truly in the eye of the beholder.

    I look at the young talent who use a spray can as there graffiti and am awe of the art they create with it.

    Oh, if only they could channel that in a positive way I’m sure lives would change.

    I’m so happy you got to make this trip and had a great visit with your son.

    God bless and have a terrific day sweetie!!! :o)
