Do I own a notebook? Yes, I do. In fact I have lots of notebooks. Where are they? Perhaps somewhere among my old travel gears, bags, suitcase…. I always want to think like Leonardo da Vinci whose notebook I have bought. But am I using it? I always bring along a notebook when I am traveling, trying to record interesting things I saw. What about photos? I am not a good photographer, and I do not want to carry a heavy big camera. So, I have to settle with my ok pictures and rely on my friends who are good photographers and are kind to share their pictures with me. In this new blog, I intend to try using some of my notes taken during my travels in the last few years, and perhaps some of my own photos or my friends’ to share with the world! I hope you all enjoy the natural beauty of these places and appreciate the cultural and artistic beauty as well. Let me start this blog by posting on “My Notebook” my recent museum visit experience and art appreciation in Denver.

I told a fellow blogger that her photo of the Freer Gallery of ART (in Washington D.C.) window is very much like the window at Belvedere Palace in Vienna where the famous painting of Klimt– “the Kiss” is housed. I am posting the photo of that window. I used the top of the window as the header of this blog. Please take a look. You can vaguely see the Belvedere Garden from the window.Blue Danube Waltz was taped in Belvedere Palace. I saw (on PBS) the same window appearing in that program. It was so beautiful! I just found the performance on You-Tube. The window appears in almost the whole program of the Blue Danube. Please note that I used the singular- window, although there are a number of them, because I consider them as one big window! Now, enjoy the music and the dance from the youTube recording. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3p1mHUD_PEY
