I love amazing art.  It’s inspiring, uplifting, satisfying, and makes me kinda giddy.  I feel lucky to have an excuse to view art and write about my experience of it here.  You can also find me at my blog Words Are Food, where I talk about nutrition, wellness, and–you guessed it–food.  Hope you enjoy my posts!
