Seeking a Cure at the Museum

I have an incurable disease. Don’t worry, I hear it’s not fatal. The symptoms include an insatiable curiosity about maps, a sudden feverish desire to visit places both new and familiar, and a compulsive need to make sure my passport is up-to-date. It’s called wanderlust, and I’ve come to terms with the powerful lure of travel.

Living with wanderlust means coming up with creative ways to calm the cravings, and so this afternoon, as the snow flurries began to join the existing drifts and the temperatures started to plummet, I sought relief in the hallowed halls of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. In just forty-five minutes, I was able to not only see the wide world, but was also allowed to journey to places not as easily plotted on a map. As a result, I was able to put my wanderlust symptoms at bay. Check out some photos of my journey…
