Careful what you wish for.  Ciwt set out to have a private art tour business and one of her clients has put in a last minute request for a tour of the Truth and Beauty show at the Legion here in San Francisco.  So she's been making daily pilgramages to that museum, looking at the richly colored paintings of the Pre Raphelite Brotherhood and their muses, waiting/hoping to get inspired so she can give a scintillating tour.   Stay tuned....
