He made it to MOMA.
My son who loves Salvador Dali's
paintings and Van Gogh.
ONLY it closes in an hour!
Still goodness and blessings in
that hour. Time will multiply!
I always say an hour in a museum
is just enough!

Starry, Starry Night is on loan to Yale for the
summer. Cousin lives in New Haven!
BUT that's not in the plans for the this summer.
