Today, I thought I’d share on my trip to the Dali Museum. I haven’t gone since their move to the new building.
Its pretty awesome and modern looking. The old building was…well…just an ordinary building. It was the right size to house Dali’s work of art which by the way Sweetman says, “He was one weird dude.”
Sweetman says, “I’d never buy any of his art. But I do like his work 1923 and before.”
Well, I can’t say that I would either. Dali had a tendency to draw or paint enlarged genetalia in the strangest places in his pictures. Subliminal-like. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to share any pictures. The museum doesn’t allow anyone to photograph Dali’s masterpieces.
Dali also had a fascination with Freud, math, and the sciences. I also noticed he had a thing for St. Helena, skeleton keys, and pocket watches. IHe would some how interject them into his paintings. Oh and I can’t forget his mustache. He had a fascination with that, too. The picture below, is a bench shaped like his famous facial hair.
Sweetman and I were a bit disappointed with the entrance fee. It cost us 21 dollars a piece for one whole floor of his work. I so wanted to see his murals that hung in the old building. The ones where you could walk to the right then to the left and then back up. Each movement unveiled a different painting. They weren’t there. ***frowns***
But there was a great labyrinth . It took ten minutes to get through.
Hedges lined a sandy trail.
There were messages on the trail. I accepted it as a for-only-me-message since I’m feeling like I’m going to jump out of my skin with the coming release of my book, Secondhand Shoes. Maybe Dali was directing me to pay attention to the message below. I wouldn’t be surprised if he even felt like giving up on his art at times. His work definitely revealed that he went against the norms of society.
So I stayed on the trail.
I made my way out and found a tree with some interesting paper tassels.
There were also some really great palm trees. Perfect, in fact.
Here are some more pics.
The next pic is of me. I’m more of a project in the works.
Anyway, Sweetman says, “I know where all the good things are.” But he also says, “What stinks in the kitchen?” He usually says this when he comes home from work and I’m in the kitchen cooking.
I was surprised that he offered to read Secondhand Shoes after the edits were finished…well, the word and sentence edits. After reading twenty-seven chapters of it he says, “This is good for a chic book.”
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I’ll be hair lopping during most of it.
Tomorrow, I’ll be going to a mini seminar in the morning put on by FWA. it’s a free one since all the issues with my daughter and Glowstick, I won’t be going to the three day event in October. For one day, it’s 200 dollars versus 319 dollars for the weekend which doesn’t include the hotel accommodations. ***frowns***
Glowstick is getting so big. He’s 9 months now and has 2 toofies.
Have a great weekend and Happy Rosh Shoshanna (Happy Jewish New Year)! I’ll be lurking around.
Hugs and chocolate,
NEW Book, too. Norma Beishir's, Alexander’s Empire will be out this weekend on Amazon. Sorry. I don’t have a link. It probably won’t be up until tomorrow or later today.
