Understanding Dali...not in my lifetime

We made the trip to
Figueras, about two hours north of Barcelona, to visit the Dali museum there. Salvador was a man that goes beyond the bounds of explanation.

He is brilliant. And elusive. And impossible to understand.

And totally enjoyable.

I am not knowledgeable in art, and don't fully understand what "good" art is. But the works of Dali compel me to think, and to understand that the genius of this man is something beyond the way I can comprehend the world.

We ran short of time, and then took a train in the wrong direction getting back to Barcelona...but I hope to make a return trip someday, and also take the short jaunt from the city to the Dali's former home in Cadaques.
