Two Gustav(e)s ---- Day 6/302

Walk: Legion of Honor (Klimt and Rodin; Gods and Goddesses in Living Color)
Distance: 6 blocks, lots of exercises, asanas, pedaling

Gustave Rodin, The Kiss (reduced, 1904) . (After) Gustav Klimp, Beethoven Frieze, 1904 (copied 1964)
The Legion has done a superb job rearranging the Rodins in their outstanding permanent collection of the sculptors's works and pairing them delicately and meaningfully with the visiting Klimp paintings.
A gorgeous show and very rare opportunity to see so many Klimp works which hardly ever travel from Europe.

Endearing Disaster --- Day 6/301

Walk: PT, AMC Dine-in Kabuki (The Disaster Artist)
Distance: 1.3 miles (against pt advice but had to do something besides exerises),  pt exercises and stretches

James Franco in The Disaster Artist

Ciwt found The Disaster Artist entertaining and endearing in a very peculiar way.  Also deep, again in a way that is difficult to pinpoint.  Excellent movie making technically and for some reason - even when the movie is going nowhere - the acting is riveting.  It captures but doesn not explaing the elusive line between horrendous egotistical disturbance and laughable farce.  Ciwt says see it; probably it will get nominated and maybe win some awards.

On the San Francisco Road Again --- Day 6/299

Walk: No, Lyft to/from Dentist, Drive again! to PT, car wash, grocery
Distance:  Not far but felt more free - and Was!  new, super picky PT impressed with Ciwt's progress,
deals being made: more driving, more walking in exchange for more care and no over-doing from Ciwt.  Rescinded if knee flares up.  Tense but necessary for sanity.

Ciwt's on the SF road again.  Oooops, wrong picture; here we go:
