One of my very favorite things to do is go to the Selected Shorts performance at the Getty Museum. (Get your minds out of the gutter, it’s got nothing to do with pants.)
A few Saturdays back, we went as an early birthday present to the Hubster. For today’s A to Z post, I’m going to share it with you.
Our favorite way to take in the Selected Shorts is to make a whole day out of it.
Instead of just going to see the performance, we go to the museum first, look at their latest displays and visit my Illuminated Manuscripts. (Yes, I really call them that.)
The Illuminated Manuscripts are relics from the earliest books, often religious documents that have been preserved and put on display. These photos don’t remotely do them justice.
Here’s a preserved scrap from a Medieval choir book:
You see why I love it? Lucky for me, my hubby does too.
We tour the gardens, soak up the sunshine and just have an amazing day. Plus, we saw Leonard Nimoy and three other actors perform. Cracklesauce!
