Sounds of New York

The Museum of Modern Art was my first stop today. In one of the rooms filled with paintings by Chagall, Kandinsky and Rousseau I heard a beautiful voice. It was soft but in perfect pitch and seemed to echo around the room. When I looked I saw it was the guard. As I was leaving I told him how beautiful his voice was and how it made me feel. He thanked me. ‘Some people are offended by my humming so I hum as softly as I can and try and send it out so that nobody will know where it’s coming from.’ I told him it sounded like it was coming from Heaven. He seemed pleased. ‘I sing pure gospel songs,’ he replied.

  1. How lovely!
    Excuse my ignorance but who is the painting above by? I know Chagnall and Kandinsky’s work and it doesn’t look like either of theirs so it must be Rousseau right?

    Would love to see these up close one day. Meanwhile back in Melbourne, I’m enjoying living vicariously through you! Keep it up!

  2. Gabi, Sounds like you are having a fabulous time! I loved MOMA; such a huge variety of exhibits it was wonderful. Keep enjoying it all!
    Sorry to hear about your dear dog.
