    You're welcome! I've had the experience of rushing through a museum/exhibit too. There are painting reproductions in the book that I have seen a million times before, but never noticed very obvious things! It becomes a bit of a game to try to spot everything and look beyond what's there. My favorite chapter is about noticing and talking about difficult things, but examining pretty graphic paintings. If she ever does her training near me, I'll go!

    My wife LOVED this book and others by the same author. We are looking forward to watching the show together very much.


    I however have been rereading old Hubert Selby Jr novels, Requiem For a Dream and Last Exit to Brooklyn.

    Tonight I have started on a book of short stories by Selby Jr that I have not read before called Song of the Silent Snow.
