‘Find things beautiful as much as you can, most people find too little beautiful.’
– Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo, London, beginning of January 1874
One year ago, I got off the plane in Amsterdam and dropped off my luggage on a house boat that I shared with my sister and brother-in-law. Immediately, I wandered off to the Van Gogh Museum. Yep, I got lost — but if you’ve got to get lost in a city … Anyhow, I was bleary-eyed and jet lagged but I wanted every moment in the magnificent city to count. It was an irreplaceable experience. Beautiful and thought provoking. A few days ago, the Van Gogh Museum celebrated its 50th anniversary. Amsterdam celebrated with a rad performance in the evening sky with 200 drones illuminating highlights of some of Vincent van Gogh’s most iconic paintings. Enjoy.
