Then went to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes because it’s sci fi and the monk loves his sci fi and I didn’t want to see Earth to Echo though after seeing DOTPOTA, I’m not so sure I made the right choice. DOTPOTA had your bad apes, your dumb drunk idiots, your good guys and one good girl, your one really good hearted ape, guns, shooting, swinging through trees, chimps wearing jewelry, and San Francisco in ruins. In 3 D. Wear protective ear wear if you go see it.
After that we went to the Denver Botanical Garden which is probably the prettiest Botanical Garden I’ve ever been to. There was/is a Dale Chihuly exhibit which was surprising and beautiful. I’m not a big fan of glass art but I’m a big fan of gardens and his work adds a playful magic to this garden.
There’s more of this madness on my Instagram if you’re so inclined.
Denver is where Joyce lives and where we have been staying. She lives in a wonderful old apartment complete with milk chute (!) and filled with collections of art everywhere your eye lands. She’s fun and funny and gracious. I feel so lucky and grateful to be here.
I will be leaving tomorrow, heading back home on my own while the Monk flies back to NY. I am missing my little gang and looking forward to smushing baby cheeks.
