I was on a mission. I wanted to see the Bibles Before the Year 1000 exhibit at the Sackler Gallery. It closes tomorrow so I thought it would be better to go through it today.
The weather was glorious. I dug out my summer clothes from the back of my closet and threw on a short sleeved t-shirt. I decided to walk to the museum and ran into this character outside of the White House. There were groups of protesters with megaphones and wearing signs to impeach Bush.
I watched in awe as people in tank tops and shorts strolled around the city. I imagine this is what it must feel like to live in Miami in January. It’s discombobulating. I’m beginning to miss the cold weather.
Anyway, I got to the museum at 2:30 p.m. and was told the exhibit was closed for the day. The exhibit is so popular, they needed to close it early to insure that the people already in line would have time to go through it before the museum closed at 5:30 p.m.
So tomorrow I’m going to wake up early and get to the museum around 8:30 a.m. to get in line. I figure I’ll bring along a paperback to kill time until the museum opens at 10:00 a.m. I am going to see this exhibit. Here are the Washington Post reviews.
