Never say never is a cliche, I generally adhere to. I started my blog, Snap du Jour at a time when I felt I wasn’t paying enough attention walking down a street or through a landscape. I can’t say that I lead a mindful life now, but other things have taken precedence over Snap du Jour. When a blog becomes a task and not a pleasure; it’s time to re-evaluate. I have. From time to time, I will use this blog the way I did snap du jour, for little photo essays.
INK ART: Past as Present in Contemporary China (December 11, 2013 – April 6, 2014) at the Met is amazing. Of course, every Museum wants to jump on the China bandwagon. It brings in visitors. This show will certainly do that and more. The exhibition will surprise you. It did me. The artists transform Chinese characters from their literal meanings into visual poetry.
