On a weekend

What to do; where to go?
It depends upon what you’re looking for.

In Boise, the weather was warm today, blue skies; perfect for hiking, biking, walking, lounging in the grass in a back yard or a park.

In Baltimore, there’s a new exhibit of the paintings of Impressionist artist Camille Pissarro at the Baltimore Museum of Art, or you could hop a jet to London to see a show of Paul Cezanne’s work.

In Paris at the Pompidou Centre, artist Xavier Veilhan and AIR will present "Aerolite," described as "a ‘weightless’ show of music, objects and light." Except that it’s sold out. But never fear; you can watch it on video in April.

For those into digital art, head to Dallas for the debut of digital and audio/visual artworks shown on huge H-D screens at the Victory Media Network.

Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, and Patti Smith will read poetry by Catalonia’s greatest modern poets at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in NYC.

In San Francisco, you could catch a concert by the Vienna Boys Choir — OR see "Beach Blanket Babylon".

As for me, since I have neither a large bank account, nor the luxury of a personal jet, I took a walk with C, and later stalked downtown Boise for some early evening photos.
