From The Cleveland Museum of Art…

The face is a picture of the mind with the eyes as its interpreter. 
-Marcus Tullius Cicero



“Learn the sweet magic of a cheerful face.”
–Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.


“A mask tells us more than a face.”
–Oscar Wilde


“She was not one for emptying her face of expression. ”
–J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey


“Age should not have its face lifted, but it should rather teach the world to admire wrinkles as the etchings of experience and the firm line of character.”
— Clarence Day

  1. I’m with Oscar Wilde :o) I would like to visit the Cleveland Museum, they have some pieces of Edvard Munch :o)

    • It’s a wonderful museum and completely re-done over the last several years. They have an outstanding armor court and the very best thing is that it’s free! Special exhibits are extra but other than parking, which is very reasonable, there’s no charge.


  2. “Old people are not proud of age
    but yet I think it’s truth,
    that wrinkles make such pretty flowers
    as compared with youth.”
    -Randy Mazie

    Tanks for your shots and thoughts. – Randy

    • Thanks for stopping by this morning, Randy. I hope all’s well with you and you’re not too busy, so you can enjoy the summer…although in Florida, it might be better to be busy now and take your time when it’s not so hot!


  3. Joe Owens says:

    I was in Cleveland about fifteen years ago, but we visited the massive zoo there with some friends. My son and theirs was about three at this time and that was the limit of their ability to concentrate. I like museums like this and we have a regional one with rotating exhibits. Occasionally i carve out a bit of time to check it out. Also. in another three weeks we start a 10 day arts and crafts festival known as the Virginia highlands Festival in my hometown..

    • Cleveland’s art museum is world-class, Joe, and we have a good zoo, too. What we’re really becoming known for is great food, not that I’ve been sampling any of it. But Michael Symon is here and Chris Hodges was just on the Food Network’s show where they are competing for their own show.
