stef_tm: Stef looking to her right suspiciously (reboot)

Roughly 15 years ago, I held a baby in my arms for hours while visiting my former partner's family in New Jersey for Christmas. A few days before Christmas, a lovely 15 year old young man accompanied me to the Cantor Art Museum at Stanford University (http://museum.stanford.edu/) The child I held in my arm for hours is nearly an adult. He's thoughtful, talented, and kind.

He's grown into a thoughtful young man. At age 10 he lost his father. His mother is a force of nature but the absence is felt.

May I invite you on our visit?

We began with the permanent installations:
- African art http://museum.stanford.edu/view/africa.html
- Rodin drawings and sculptures (we wandered outside to see the Gates of Hell) http://museum.stanford.edu/view/rodin.html

Then a brief detour to a multi media presentation (imagine 4 screens of YouTube videos)

Back to some of the permanent installations - Asia and the Americas

Then to the a few exhibits.

The Sino-Japanese wars. Japanese paintings on one wall, Chinese paintings on the opposite wall.
Ink performances. Calligraphy and an artist applying his paint with boxing gloves.
