Re: Signing off…
… for now, at least. I’ll be on the road for the next week or so, and am unlikely to have access to a printer. I will not, then, be mailing hard copies as I usually do. I will likely try to stay off the computer altogether. However, if something comes up that truly demands attention, you’ll have to go to the blog, The Rohrabacher Letters, to find out what I have to say.
A note before departure: I sat yesterday in Frank Gehry’s incredible Disney Hall and listened to Mozart and Bruckner. On Wednesday I’ll be at the Metropolitan Museum to see Michelangelo and David Hockney; and, at the Breuer extension, Edvard Munch and Anselm Kiefer. On Thursday I’ll be at the Museum of Modern Art to see an old friend and colleague, the African American master Charles White paired in an exhibition with Leonardo da Vinci (Charlie would be so chuffed, had he lived to see it). On Saturday, with luck and time enough, I’ll be at the National Gallery in Washington DC to see Vermeer.
Lucky me! What a wealth of culture from the Western Heritage! And—I can’t resist—how very small beside these great minds seems your Donald Trump, with his petty, vindictive Tweets and his vulgar castles!
To go to NYC and then Washington DC (to escape politics)! That’s the ticket!
Respectfully, as always,
Peter Clothier, Ph.D.
