Lucky Girl

I am a lucky, lucky girl.

For my birthday? I was given two heavenly days in the Berkshires. We stayed at Porches in North Adams: Hot tub. Sauna. Homemade cookies. And a sunny breakfast room with very strong coffee.  What more could a lucky girl ask for? Oh wait, before you answer? I was also treated to the 'blissed out' package, which included two spa treatments. Like I said: lucky.
Porches is across the street from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.  MassMoca (as it is known) was a sprawling, vast complex of 19th-century factory buildings that, through adaptive reuse, has been turned into a modern art museum.  This was our second visit to this inspiring free-wheeling space.



We were looking forward to the Sol Lewitt exhibit. I'll tell you about it in my next post.

  1. I live in Oakland and saw those Sol Lewitt paintings for MANY years at SF MoMA, glad they're making their rounds to another city, they really are beautiful.

  6. Have you heard about the Wilco "curated" performance weekend, the Solid Sound Festival, at MassMoCA August 13-15? I read about it in the Guardian UK last week and already have my tickets. Here's the 411: http://www.massmoca.org/event_details.php?id=553
