How Mr. AOW and I spent the day on Friday, September 18, 2015:
The exhibit Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye opened on June 28, 2015, at the National Gallery of Art.
One of the highlights of the day was the security guard at the entrance-exit door for the exhibit. This older black gentleman, with an elegant demeanor, greeted everyone who was entering the exhibit and offered a brochure to any of us who didn't already have a brochure. He also spoke to everyone who was leaving the exhibit and ended his brief goodbye exchange with a wide smile, a steadfast gaze, and these words: "I hope you have a wonderful life!" Capra-esque.
