Thoughtful art, prayers and more

Shabbat Shalom.

Today, after shabbat morning services and lunch, I went to the local modern art museum. What an amazing place! I was reminded of the power of art to move us when we are open to it. Quite a few of the exhibits delt with human interaction and relationships. The exhibts disquieted and comforted me. The flow of sounds, people, images and music wrapped around my mind and my spirit, encouraging me to open up, take risks and let the art move me. Sometimes I felt as if I never left the room of wind (there is a room with 75 mph wind) as my emotions blew like my hair did. Other times, the art calmed and centered me. The blessings and challenges of art. I look forward to going back there.
