We’ve reached the final installment of Cy’s “Snapshots from Madrid” series. Today’s post features some of the interesting doors Cy “experienced” while in Madrid, an appropriate ending for the series. I had the opportunity to visit the 80th anniversary Picasso exhibit at the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid. The exhibit, entitled Pity and Terror in Picasso: … Continue reading Snapshots from Madrid: Doors and a Fond Farewell
It’s Friday, so that means I am back with another installment of “Snapshots from Madrid.” Here Cy shares stunning architectural photos from Toledo and Buen Retiro Park in Madrid.

There are a lot of things that I can say about Spain, some good and … Continue reading Snapshots from Madrid: Beauty and Oppression

I fell in … Continue reading She Dances: Working on My Sway

Now, I know we just celebrated A.A. Milne and Winnie-the-Pooh last week, but rest assured, Pics and Posts will not become the blog that celebrates all … Continue reading Virginia Woolf Wrote Postcards Too!
