S and I are off to Kansas City for a couple days to visit with good friends. If you've never been, KC is such a wonderful town. I'm a big fan of the art museum--one of the finest here in the States and with an unbelievable new contemporary wing. On exhibition right now is Art in the Age of Steam and the curators have put out a request for journey stories. I know I've got a few that come to mind--how about you? We're not going by train this time but I sure would like to be! I'll settle for taking in the experience via these two fine paintings though--Kirchner and Kandinsky.
