In the nick of time
Just made it home before the rain hit. I spent the day at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. It was the first time I'd been there since getting to Sydney, and it was spectacular. Really nice to see new artists and to see the whole floor dedicated to aboriginal art and artists, both new and old. Their work is so different from the paintings we are used to seeing, and much of it is done on bark with natural dyes. In addition, the Biennale also had one of the floors filled with sculptures and some more modern looking pieces. Spent a couple hours there, then went outside and was reading on the steps till it started to get cold and the sky darkened. Then I walked to the bus stop, going by the National Library first and deciding that I'll have to go back there another day. The sky seemed like it was ready to open up, despite predictions of no rain till next week, so I decided to come back home and watch the State of Origin III rugby league game on later tonight. Then, just after walking in the door I hear the pitter patter of rain drops against the roof and was glad I'd made it home just before the storm. Now there's time for a homemade chocolate chip walnut cookie and to make dinner before the game at 7:30 tonight.
Sounds wonderful! So glad you are taking advantage of your time off and are exploring Sydney. I am told there is a holocaust museum there that should not be missed. Let me know if you get there. Saw your pictures from your last post when they went up but had trouble posting a comment. It was great to see more of the city and your explorations. Keep on posting!!!Post a Comment
