The Go To Girls Blog Goes to….. The Van Gogh Museum. Part 2.

Thank you for sharing your pictures and thoughts on the Van Gogh Museum! I hope to go one day, as he is also my favorite artist.

If you regularly read my blog you will know I was disappointed when we recently visited The Van Gogh Museum. If you did not read my last blog I will quickly recap. I went to see two specific paintings at The Van Gogh Museum and discovered they are not in this museum, they are in two different museums, which was a huge disappointment for me. I did not do my research which I pride myself on always being prepared when travelling especially. I should follow my own advice and DO MY RESEARCH!!!!

We booked the Van Gogh Museum tour through Viator which turned up to be a really good deal. It is located in Museum Square in Amsterdam and believe it or not is really easy to get to. From our hotel to the museum on tram took us about twenty minutes and when we began we had no idea…

The Go To Girls Blog Visits…. The Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

I can understand your disappointment to not get to see your favorites. I am going to the MOMA in New York in a month, so I will get to see “Starry NIght.” Van Gogh’s paintings are all over the world! It’s amazing! I would have presumed the same thing as you about thinking all of his paintings would be at the museum named after him, but they are everywhere, a real tribute to his genius and legacy!

As we arrived at the museum I felt a wave of emotion flowing over me as I said I love Vincent Van Gogh and to have the chance to be in the same room as some of his paintings was quite overwhelming.  We entered the front and gave the man on the door out tickets and made our way…

The Benefits of Co-Writing

A Writer's Path

by Felicity Annora

Hello! And welcome back to the wonderfully, weird corner of the internet. YO GIRL IS BACK WITH A WRITING POST.

So before I jump into this headfirst, there’s been some general franticness in the air for writers as NaNoWriMo fast approaches. Me and a friend have been wanting to co-write a book for awhile, and we thought that NaNoWriMo would be the perfect time to do something like that. Except we lacked planning for this story.

Van Gogh Alive in Cosenza, Calabria

Wow, what an amazing experience! I will be visiting New York in a month and will definitely see his artwork at MOMA. I wish I could see this exhibit. Van Gogh is my favorite painter and is an inspiration for many.

Christendom is dead…long live Christianity!

In My Father's House

We can rightly say that Christendom, which has dominated Western culture for over 1,60o years, is dead. Long live Christianity! I’ll explain what I mean in a moment. After long exchanges with atheists here about what Christianity is or isn’t, I thought I needed to address this head on, because if we think Hitler was a Christian, we’ve definitely lost the plot! But before I get to that, I’m personally very glad about the death of Christendom because we can finally stop conflating what Christianity is with a cultural and geopolitical religion.

Poetry Tuesday – Laid to Rest

Upon her pearly, lacy skin

Red hot sparks of blazing fire

Singe and melt away

What seems like innocence.

When the heavy smoke clears,

All that remains

Are her wretched guts

Decaying in dead blood.

All the millions of colors

From leaves of October brilliance

Fall to dampness,

A forever lingering sadness

Of once better days.

Stars, moon, and sun–

All hidden by thick smog

That makes impure

The lungs of all who breathe.

Coughing, choking, suffocating–

And finally dying

As the last eyes of humanity

Gaze in sheer fright

At a mushroom cloud.

Can’t anyone see

We’re destroying ourselves?

Too late.

We’re already laid to rest

In our hellish “Kingdom of God”

(We had expected.)

With Satan’s glaring cat eyes

Piercing our hearts.
