The City Museum is located in St. Louis, Missouri. When you open up City Museum's website the first words that you see are: "Always building..." It is an old shoe factory that has become a play museum for young and old. I traveled there for a Nia Moving to Heal conference. Before the dancing began, I met up with two dear friends to climb and slide and shimmy through many known and unknown areas. There is a ferris wheel on the roof top that I went on with Nyah, my 11 year old friend, and a 10 floor slide that Nyah and her Mom slid down. I did not. I took the stairs down and wondered if I would see them again. We had cell phones and I knew that we would; however for a short moment, I was a little scared. And then there we were together and we were near the caves and a white whale.
Nyah went to Ridgeway Community School and loved art. Her family moved and we only see one another occasionally when she makes a return visit with her family to Winona. This time, I was traveling nearer to her home and we met up for a play day. What a treat to spend a day of exploration and fun together! Living Life as Art all the way!
