I was in Budapest with a very good friend of mine, my travel buddy and my research collaborator, June of last year to present a paper at the Arts in Society Conference. Naturally, during our free time, we head to museums, libraries, bookshops. Geek galore.

“In poetically well built museums, formed from the heart’s compulsions, we are consoled not by finding in them old objects that we love, but by losing all sense of Time.” 
― Orhan PamukThe Museum of Innocence

“If he really wanted to be happy in the world, Horst? To have any kind of joyful or happy life? He should pay twenty grand to go back to his rapid detox place and then come here and smoke Buddha Haze and stand in a museum all day long.”

“The greatest artist does not have any concept
Which a single piece of marble does not itself contain
Within its excess, though only
A hand that obeys the intellect can discover it.” 
― Michelangelo

  1. Lovely architecture!

  2. The front looks a lot like the Philadelphia Art Museum. Great pictures! :)

  3. hi Myra, reading, that you’ve been in Budapest, I would like to mention, that there is a conflict in some European states discussing the integration of Gypsies coming from Hungary; some nations send them back (like France and Italy), others say that’s racism and are criticizing this (for example Germany, the European Commission – and me) – maybe read my blog at http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/gypsies-under-pressure/
