Scenes from the Day in New York
Late Winter Central Park - the light is ephemeral.
Detail: Entrance to Assyrian Palace in Nimrod at the Met.
Carvings and cuniform writing.
The palace of Nimrod. I could soooo live in a home with these colors of the earth - stone.
The mosaic flooring of the Greek room at the Met.
More of the mosaic. Look at the imperfection.
After cleaning up (and sleeping in) after a birthday party I gave for my 23-year old son and 58- year old husband ( they both had birthdays this week), Lee requested going to the Met for his birthday. Not for long, but just wandered through a couple of exhibits; the Greek and Persian exhibit were two of them. It is never disappointing.
Then, we walked through the park. It was 50 degrees, not all that warm, but seemed as if people have come out of hibernation - people just seemed happy to be out. New Yorkers love their weekends.
