Hello readers, I’m sorry to be so awol from the blog these last weeks — it’s been a wicked busy holiday season for me and the family. I’m off to New York again for a few days with Steve. (We were just there Friday). So no postings from me til later in the week. Meanwhile here’s a few pictures from our trip to the Met. More on flickr. xoxo

Temple of Dendur in the Met. One of the great spaces in a museum anywhere.

One of the attractions of the space is its light from the bank of windows overlooking Central Park. Another is the seating — we saw people sleeping here although I wouldn’t recommend it, for fear of rolling into the pool.

Statuary in the American wing.

Cate and I discovered the section of the American wing with the storage vitrines. Miles of American-made stuff, from a spinet piano made in Philadelphia in 1739 to silver and dishes, dollhouses, and, as here, statuary.

It felt a little like shopping at a very amazing boutique.
