Notre Dame Cathedral of Strasbourg, France.  An exquisite cathedral with intricate detail at every turn. The bottom half shows part of the nightly light show in July 2014.  You can read more about the Cathedral and its unique components as well as seek the numerous videos on You Tube which show even better the 3D nature and the movement as can be imagined in looking at the bottom photos here in blue as the large rose window begins to appear it is rotating.

SO SO SO SO SO SO EXCITED that the brilliant Jacqueline Woodson's book Brown Girl Dreaming is a New York Times bestseller.
It’s a fascinating and beautiful memoir-in-verse about the way that history shapes the lives of individuals, and how one girl grew up. Woodson is one of our best and smartest writers for children, but as an adult who has read this book twice in the last couple months, I can tell you that this book is truly for everyone.
YAY YAY YAY YAY.

I so agree!

I left Giverny after each visit with a better understanding of Impressionism. Monet’s beloved reconstructed gardens leave the visitor with beautiful impressions from the bamboo grove of varying greens to the plots planted by colors of varying shades.

Giverny
Remember the chickens in several Monet paintings? They are on the grounds today along with turkeys and white cows. The lush arbor over the arched wooden bridge brings a cool respite. And the unique flowers alongside the familiar ones are a visual feast.

Giverny…such a special place. I had visited in 1990 and found it such a delight I was a bit hesitant to go again recently…what if it disappointed and my memory had played tricks on me? But I went and I am glad. I saw new things, I saw things I remembered well but noticed different angles. If given the chance to go yet again, the pink stucco house surrounded by flowers and water will be a welcome sight to me.
