26 July 2011


Today didn't work out quite like we had planned. We went to bed last night thinking that we had three jobs lined up for today to find that, no, it wasn't today, but tomorrow instead. OK, so we regrouped and spent most of the day working on our schoolwork. David is in his second-to-last class in the MBA program and I am in an Art Appreciation class as well as a class to help people get used to online learning. I have one more assignment to do in the online learning class, as well as three responses to make and I'll have everything completed for that class, four weeks early.

The Art Appreciation class is an entirely different story. I'll be working on the assignments for that class until the last minute each week, I think. :) Although I feel overwhelmed, I am enjoying the class. I like reading about art even though I do not always agree with the person on the other side of the table. It would be rather boring if everyone agreed on absolutely everything, but it does get rather tedious if there is never agreement on anything.

I was reading today about the restoration of The Creation of Adam, part of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel project. Due to previous restoration attempts, the colors of the painting were somewhat muted.  A more recent restoration revealed that the colors were more intense than previously realized. (Sayre)

I can't decide which version I like the best, the muted version or the newly restored, more colorful version. No matter the color, and nudity aside, it is a beautiful representation of Heavenly Father giving life to Adam, to the beginning of mankind.
