One of my best Christmas presents was a ticket to the Bruyas Collection exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art. My son got tickets for the entire family. I had almost given up hope of seeing them enjoy cultural exhibits, having overlooked the bored expressions of my darling children when I dragged them to museums throughout their childhood. But now that they are twentysomethings, culture is cool. We now swap meaningful notes on current books and movies. As a matter of fact Jordan takes issue with my review of Closer and asked for the screenplay for Christmas.
We had a nice family lunch and then went to the museum for a few hours. The exhibit consisted primarily of 19th century French works by Courbet and Delacroix. And then my poor children both had to go to work. I wanted to say to them as they drove off, 'Welcome to my world.' There is however this promising exhibit for our next trip to the museum.
