Gate, Rodin Museum

Gate, Rodin Museum,
originally uploaded by Philanthropoid.

I’ve been in the city for coming on 14 years and I have yet to visit the Rodin Museum.

At least now I remember the place exists. When I first moved here, the place was in the midst of a lengthy cosing-for-renovation project. A couple years’ worth of closed doors and renovation efforts, if I recall correctly.

I swear that as I created my own internal map of the city and its attractions, I just left a blank space on the parkway where that museum should be, and my chronic forgetfulness about its existence is one of the main reasons I’ve not taken even one visit to the place.

(Another prime reason has to do with not seeing the attractions of one’s home city, which rather common behavior far and wide and deserves a post of its own someday…)

    I finally went a few months ago, when I moved.
    I’m not sure if I can ever go again because the fountain at the steps creeps me out. (Have you ever seen a fountain with water coming out if it’s mouth that really just looks like it’s vomiting? Yeah, this fountain is one of those. Cool brass head; not so cool effect.)

    I’m sure you wanted to know that.
    My mom tells me that the fountain is off for the time being, though.
