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.

  2. what a great birthday present!

    you could ask for an extra room for me...

    thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a fun time.

    I've never been to MassMoca... looking forward to it, soon.

  4. I have not been to MASS MoCA in years - way too long.

  5. Just came from SITS to say hi.

  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:


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
