My mother is an artist, and during the childhood years I spent living in Europe, she dragged me to every art museum in Western Europe. While I certainly didn’t appreciate the experience as a child, I appreciate it much more as an adult. (Although, for the record, I only need a day to experience the Louvre while my Mom still needs a week!)
Last Fall we watched a 60 Minutes special about Vincent Van Gogh that was absolutely fascinating. After seeing the segment, I vowed to visiting Auvers-sur-Oise the first chance I got. Lucky for me, I had that opportunity during this trip to France.
Vincent’s brother Theodore was a life-long supporter and friend to the troubled artist. As I visited their simple graves, side-by-side in the cemetery in Auvers-sur-Oise, I thought of my own sisters and how much I love, adore, and am grateful for them in my life.
