This blog is a digital blessing bowl, a place to record the small blessings that are often missed or forgotten but which make life holy. Feel free to add your own blessings to my blessing bowl. Or perhaps you'll be encouraged to start your own.

Picking up where nature ends

Great art picks up where nature ends.  ~Marc Chagall

This past Sunday, on a short anniversary weekend get-away, my husband and I visited the North Carolina Museum of Art to tour the new building. (See his blog about it here.) Stunning light-filled galleries. Lush sculpture gardens. Shimmering reflecting pools- this is the description on the Museum's home page.  In this new setting, the Museum's collection  "picks up where nature ends"   in such a way that they seem seamless.  Light, shadow, reflection, movement, water -  peaceful and tranquil even with the crowd in attendance. During the weekend's opening festivities, dancers performed outside and inside the building. This museum, created and funded by state legislation, is a blessing to the people of North Carolina.  Admission to the permanent collection and museum park is free.
