Well, I haven't gotten much done creativity-wise, but we did send our youngest daughter off to New York City for 6 weeks which felt like quite a feat. While there we visited the New York Public Library so I could see the original Winnie-the-Pooh. Wow! I never really thought of a library as a tourist destination, but holy-tamoly! It is QUITE the building.
Everywhere you looked there was something interesting to see!
And the ceilings!!! Oh, my goodness, every ceiling was just a work of art in itself!
And to top it off, there were some amazing works of art on the walls too! The one below is just one of 4 huge gorgeous canvases. (I don't know who the girls are, though.)
Claire especially liked the old phone booth. Something she really hasn't seen many of in her days!
Okay, now--so if the building itself wasn't enough, the library also has several interesting pieces in its collections that really give it museum-worthy status.
A copy of the original Gutenberg bible. Wow!
The umbrella that P. L. Travers owned and "used" in her books about "Mary Poppins." I don't know if you can see it well enough in this photo, but there is actually a parrot on top!
The original manuscript of Frances Hodgson Burnett's "Secret Garden." One of my favorites!
And then, of course, the New York Library also has the original stuffed animals on which A. A. Milne based his "Winnie-the-Pooh" stories. I suppose that deserves its own post!
Take good care of yourself!
