I love the Modern. It's hard to talk about sculpture in this area nowadays without at least mentioning the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

Thanks for asking Matt, can't complain. Or, I could, but it wouldn't be taken well. Budapest is pretty great this time of year, getting better, and when I need a break I take off for Italy or Spain. Currently working plans B through G since plan A, subject of infamous drunk posting, is still in the US. Un?fortunately none of them have a six foot tall vagina. You?
