Inside/Outside --- Day 5/194


Walk: Skin Doc (all good!!), Marin Driving Day
Distance: 1.5 miles, Home Yoga (after Callie had 2nd home acupuncture - Yay Eastern modalities)

A lot of what Ciwt likes and admires about the Snohetta-designed expansion of SFMOMA isn't visible.  The lively quietness, not the brittle, echoey kind.  And the way the galleries are grand and spacious but at the same time soothing.  She's never trapped here; there is a marvelous flow that accommodates crowds without her being aware of more than a few nearby people and never causes her to bump into them. The light is amazing.  Wherever she is there is a continuous illumination that somehow duplicates gently filtered daylight.  And the real thing - the outside - is always right there through wall size, uncovered windows in the exterior hallways and the galleries themselves. Through them the city with all its circles, angles, surfaces, architectural styles (along with the machinery that is changing it drastically) becomes part of her art viewing experience and enlarges her sensibilities.
