Mother’s Day at Storm King

We had the most beautiful Mother’s Day!
Have you been to Storm King? It’s an open-air museum full of mostly-but-not-only large-scale modern sculptures, situated beautifully on a large campus about an hour outside of NYC. You can bring a picninc. You can rent bikes to toodle around. It’s gorgeous AND it’s a great place to go with young kids who can run and make noise and explore and enjoy nature as well as taking in the art. Here are some photos to give you a sense:
The open space, the woods at the borders, the sun, the smell of the air all combined to evoke so many happy memories of my back yard, summer camp at Cornell, time in England, time at Vassar, biking in France with my husband. The biggest gift was how it all combined to make me (allow me?) to feel more expansive, happy and optimistic than I have in a really long time.
I don’t imagine that Storm King will provide such a profoundly joyful experience for everyone as it does for me, but I do encourage you to go for a visit if you have the chance.
