Act 219

Check out an art gallery

I’m sad to say that a day’s parking in Ottawa was more expensive than a day pass to the National Art Gallery, but such is life. Sixteen dollars was spent on parking in order to spend twelve dollars on admission. ¬†We tend to socialize what is priceless and privatize that which is commercial. My boys (who got free admission) and I enjoyed some wonderful, priceless art today. And I’m grateful. So go see some art if you can. It’s a cost effective way to take in some culture and culture is nothing more (and nothing less) than our shared experience as human beings. You’d be surprised how much kids appreciate pieces that are older than old and more famous than famous. I was. And I’m delighted that they got to experience it.
