One of my favorite places on Earth is the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. Here are a few of the postcards I have collected over the years (ignore McCain in the corner) and have on the bulletin board in my office. Thomas Hart Benton's "Persephone" is the prominent one in the picture. If you have never been to the Nelson-Atkins, no matter where you live, it is worth the trip. Have lunch and plan to spend the day.
