Musee Rodin

i just love the museums
in paris.
a few days ago hannah
and griff and i 
visited the 
rodin museum.
griffin wanted nothing
to do with walking around
inside the museum..
so we spent most of our
time walking around 
the gardens outside.

the thinker

the three shades

the gates of hell

there was spooky music
coming from the trees
near the gates of hell

monument to the 
burghers of calais.

any day spent at a 
museum in paris
is a great day in my book.

was the first sunday of the month.
which means free museum admission
in paris.
steve had not yet visited 
musee d'orsay
so we went.
now, usually
i'm cursing the stroller..
in my elevator,
on the metro
 a stroller gets you 
to the front of the line
at the museums.
and free admission sundays
are packed.

it was a great weekend.
will came home from
his field trip to brittany
friday night.
saturday morning 
stephen left for crete
with his senior class.

the next few weeks are crazy busy.
sports banquets
the prom
going away parties
and school ending.

looking forward to summer! 


  1. Love how griffin is trying to find the music!

  2. more pics of griffin please! he is the reason i first got hooked to your blog. i mean i love your parisian life, BUT your children are just too sweet-looking for words!

    1. What a great museum weekend- love the pictures. And love your bag!

  3. This is the third time I've tried to comment here--my iPad and phone can't do the word verification for some reason.

    The Rodin museum is one of my favorite places in all of Paris. In 1997 I fell in love with his "Hand of God" sculpture and in the succeeding 16 years I've tried to find a replica for my home, to no avail. If you go back again, snap a picture of it for me, would you?

  4. Looks like a wonderful day!

  5. The director chose to tell about the life of the sculptor August Rodin from a different perspective. The film begins in the middle of the sculptor's life. After a difficult period, he acquired a positive reputation around his work, and the French government invites work inspired by Dante. director successfully reconstructs the complex relationship with his colleague, lover, and confidante - Camille Claudel. The film has all the ingredients for success - passion, love, and tension, so I do not agree with the low grade received by the film. In conclusion: I think the film met expectations, was true to the original, focused on the processes surrounding the artist's life.
