Monday, August 4, 2008
The first Sabbath was a trip to the Met, to see the paintings of JMW Turner, the stone mosaics of ancient nobles, and photos from the last century. Art was followed by worship, then Virgin records for some birthday CD purchases.
The second Sabbath was a wild raspberry picking trip to Westchester, followed by a barbecue (that is what they call a cookout up here). Fellowship and food. Deer, a notable sunset over the Hudson.
The third Sabbath was the Pepsico sculpture garden. I'd been there before, but I was still unprepared for how moved I would be by the sculpture in the beauty of nature. We walked along gravel paths (note: don't wear Birkenstocks on gravel paths) and inhaled, photographing most of it for you. I'll see how many photos I can load for you...
Todd and me in fifty years!
"Hats Off" by Alexander Calder. It really is as big as it looks; it is not a funky angle on the part of the photographer!
"Eve" by Auguste Rodin.
"Three People on Four Benches" by George Segal.
Here's hoping you have experienced a little rest yourselves.
Happy Monday, all!
