This week I find myself asking, what is the appropriate response to the passing of an ingenious artist? I was sad to read of the passing of Cy Twombly on Tuesday. Strange that I wrote about him just recently and discovered that I was introducing his work to many of you.
Well, yesterday I felt called to visit the Twombly museum here in Houston, as a personal memorial. (If any of you visit Houston, I highly recommend paying a visit). Its white and sun-drenched walls make Twombly's work come alive. Most especially the colossal "Say Goodbye, Catullus, to the Shores of Asia Minor". Wow! What a wonderful tribute.
