Field Trip Day!

For weeks, Dev and I have been scheduling--and having to cancel--a trip to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Today, we finally made it, and I definitely needed the break.  For writer-me, it was a research day as well.  For Dev, it was a school day.  We win!  :)

The museum is both restful and stimulating. We spent a huge amount of time appreciating the African Art galleries, but somehow completely missed the North American collections. We wandered the galleries of European and Asian art, sometimes with great seriousness, and sometimes laughing as we created dialog between the paintings.

In the Contemporary Design gallery, I found the desk that fit my personality.

And we both want this knife block for our kitchen.

The weather was fine enough we spent an hour walking the grounds. Alas, the combination of melted snow and un-melted ice made most of the trails more of an adventurous slog than we were looking for, but we enjoyed what we could.

And Dev wanted to take a happy picture of me:

Then, on the way home, Dev asked about Sand of Bone, and helped me talk through a solution to a long-standing issue. It'll make revisions a tad more complicated on one hand, but it does indeed solve the issues while at the same time enhancing the story and opening possibilities for future storylines beyond this and the sequel. I have such a cool kid!

If you can get that into focus, that would make a seriously cool author picture!

Thanks! I like it, too.

My little inexpensive camera has a heck of a time holding sharp focus without a flash, and we can't, of course, use the flash in the galleries. But I like the photo enough that Dev and I are going to try for another when we go up in March!
