July 12 Day 856: MoMA in NYC

We had a family filled weekend in TN celebrating big birthdays of my cousin, my uncle, and my sister. It was four generations from the Vincent side of the family—Great Grandma Betsy to the barely two week old Betsy Jean.

Since then, Mark and I ventured to a New York State of mind to finally enjoy our birthday gifts to each other. Today was an exploration of public transportation and the Museum of Modern Art. The goal—to see Van Gogh’s Starry Night. (Remember for my birthday, we experienced the immersive Van Gogh exhibit).

We succeeded on all accounts. Masks and vaccinations are no longer required, only recommended, for public transportation and the museum. You can be sure, we wore our masks. There was just too much humanity around to take the risk otherwise.

Pictures do not do the art justice but I will put my favorites as reminders of the day.

Tomorrow we head upstate for part 2.

The cover image is a Lego set of Starry Night available in the gift shop. I love it because you can see Mark’s reflection in the black frame to the left.
