Recently I had two occasions to go inside my favorite neighborhood building- the Grand Palais. This gorgeous, glass-topped building was built between 1897 and 1900 for the World Fair held in Paris in 1900.
A week or so ago I went to a photography exhibit there by Helmut Newton, which was fascinating. I wasn’t familiar with his work and loved the interesting Vogue shots, as well as the more unusual photos for Playboy and others. Yep-lots of beautiful naked women were hanging on the walls of the Grand Palais that day.
Two days later I went back to the Grand Palais for an art fair being held in the large area under the glass roof. All the other exhibits I had seen there were in the wings and I was excited to finally get into the main part of the building. It was spectacular.
We are off to New York City today for the holiday weekend. We will be meeting our daughter who has been traveling during a Gap Year with Thinking Beyond Borders since early September. We’re so excited to see her again and to hear about her adventures.
I wish you all a very happy Easter in your neck of the woods, wherever that may be.
