If you're old enough you will remember this tune, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and sung first by Dionne Warwick. It kept cycling through my mind as I sat on the train to San Jose Quilt and Textile Museum in California.
According to some locals I met, this is the only San Jose in the US and the song was written for it. I can't help adding that San Jose is also home to eBay. On my way I passed through Menlo Park, home of Facebook.
While in San Jose, I was lucky enough to see the Quilt National for 2011 in the museum. It is an exhibition of international modern quilts that had been juried into a travelling collection. Unfortunately, I can't share my pleasure. Once again, no photographs allowed. You can, however, buy the book online.
In San Francisco I visited the SFMOMA. Photography without a flash was permitted so I have a small collection of images that appealed to me. I particularly want to share a picture of my afternoon tea.
Yes, a slice of cake made to look like Mondrian's artwork!
