MNAC Barcelona

Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya or in its shorter name MNAC, is one of important museums in Spain. Located on Montjuïc Hill, a hill that overlooks the city landscape of Barcelona. The museum is housed in the Palau Nacional since 1934, a landmark building built in 1920-ish. The Palau Nacional has impressive fountains and stairs to walk way up to the museum. Sometimes there are light and music shows in the fountains area, usually on Friday or Saturday nights. Unfortunately we left Barcelona before the weekend.

The museum hosts permanent exhibition of art ornaments of European art styles: Romanesque and Gothic art, Renaissance and Baroque art, and Modern art. They were recovered from various religious buildings that collapsed or damaged. The museum played important role in restoring these arts and in the end the collection was massive.

I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart.  I am.  I am.  I am.”   —   Sylvia Plath

(This is the first Sylvia Plath quotation since I have been posting the Cryptoquote spoilers!  It’s a great quote, but it’s touched both with irony and controversy.  The irony should be pretty obvious to anyone who knows of her.  It sings with a kind of defiant will to live, but she was so clinically depressed that she committed suicide at the tender age of 30.  She had a husband – although they were going through a separation period – and two very young children.  The kind of things that drive most mentally stable people to want to live.  The controversy comes from a single, semi-ambiguous word in the quotation.  The version…

But it was when he suddenly realized, “Wait a minute; I’m walking on water; I’m not supposed to be able to do this,” that he went down.

HALF BREED

PAPER AIRPLANES

keithgarrettpoetry

 

Watch them fly, as a child, magic in flight,

Different sizes, many paper shapes.

When just a boy, when magic seemed so real,

In my desk there were stacks of paper airplanes,

Colored and ready for takeoff, imagination of a child.

They soared in the sky on a breezy, sun filled day,

I remember those times when i would run and play.

Up on a hill, standing there looking down,

My airplanes of paper ready to sail up high.

Paper airplanes in my time of youth,

I can almost feel it again, i can see it now.
