Art in French
 The Louvre Museum of Art, Paris, France (with the emphasis on France). In visiting the art museums of foreign countries, it's not necessary to speak the language, nor even understand the spoken version. However, I have found that it IS necessary, or at le...

Antonio Donghi
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,  And sorry I could not travel both  And be one traveler, long I stood  And looked down one as far as I could  To where it bent in the undergrowth;           Then took the other, as just as fair,  And having perhaps the b...
