By happy accident, I found myself at the Cantor Arts Center yesterday. Do you know this place? It’s a favorite of mine. From the Rodin sculpture garden to the colors used in the exhibits, the light, the space, the art, the Greek and Egyptian antiquities – the Cantor museum never fails to lift my spirits. And can you believe that admission is still free? I can’t! All you have to do is pay for parking and I didn’t even have to do that yesterday because a woman who was leaving gave me her paid parking receipt with time left on it. I can’t really remember what the museum was like when I worked on campus way back when. All I know is that since it finally reopened following the earthquake of ’89, it’s just gotten better and better. You can also eat there at Jesse Cool’s Cool Cafe. I always liked Jesse Cool. She participated on one of the career panels I hosted back in my days at Palo Alto’s Career Action Center and she was very generous with our audience. The cafe has a lovely patio attached that overlooks a big lawn. Beautiful to eat there on a nice day. And don’t forget the book shop. I was amused to find chocolate molded in the form of Rodin’s The Kiss there (in both milk and dark). That would make a fun gift. Do check out the fantastic sculpture below by clicking here. Or better yet, go experience it firsthand!
