Evening -

The night is warm.   The stars are shining.   All day, leaves were falling, honoring this first day of fall.

We went tonight to the MV Library to hear a talk on the new De Young Museum.   It was fascinating to hear the history of the old and the new.  I better understand what the architect was trying to do, though I still wonder why each of the 7200 panels need to be different, and I understand that the idea is to give the effect of leaves on trees.  Each leaf is unique, each tree, and, therefore, so is each panel.   Certainly, the landscape architecture is magnificent, and the whole, inside and out, is quite an achievement.    We have an amazing collection of art in San Francisco.  I am now going to make more effort to visit our museums.

Jane and I worked hard today, and I discovered that I need to go more deeply into my experience, so I am going back through the blog.  It is not so painful for me this time.  It doesn't seem like it happened to me.  It just is, and now is now, and it is a lovely evening, and I am tired and soon to bed.  The kittens are already asleep.
