|I spent quite a bit of time with this piece, but forgot to note the title and artist's name.|
During my recent visit to the Art Gallery of Alberta, I tried to pay close attention to how I interacted with the artwork. What makes certain pieces captivating?
- What drew me in for a closer look? What did I skim past?
- If something was ugly or trivial (in my view), did I still want to spend time with it?
- How did the artist successfully give voice to a concept?
- What was memorable? Why?
- Which pieces did I spend the most time with? Why?

On our way home we decided to visit Harmon Valley Park. It's been YEARS since my last visit, and I'd forgotten almost everything about it.
My granddaughter was excited to find possibly the tallest slide in the World!
