A TREAT....


WHERE DID THE WEEK GO?  I meant to post this much sooner, but time will not diminish the impact of the events! 

If you have been in touch with the excellent blog of ARTIT , you probably are familiar with her exceptional art work, and read about Jeane's visit to New York.  I had the great good fortune to have met her last year, and it was a natural for us to catch up this year.  So last Wednesday we met at the Met!  An easy choice for me, having played in the nooks and crannies of the Egyptian hall since I was about 10 years old.  So off we went, through many dynasties, and the great installation of the Temple Of Dendur. 

Then a very long pause for lunch and more talk than one would think possible.  What a companion.  Please invite Jeane to accompany you anywhere.  You won't regret it.  And when in NY, bear in mind that I can point out the zillion dollar acquisitions that hang at the Met.  Rembrandts Galore!

A walk in Central Park on this sunny, stellar day, allowed me to point out the site of a notorious murder.  (Sorry, I do that sort of thing).  You don't get this info from the Park Rangers.  We had to sit down on a bench, one I intended to claim on NYMarathon day, far removed, to regain our composure.  Yes, I'm a barrel of laughs and arcane information.  Been here too long.  But I can do the A List tour.

And so the moment of air-kissing arrived, and Jeane took her leave to pursue other encounters.  We all are working on getting her to come back soon.  Very soon.

Ciao, Jeane!!

Yes The Metropolitan Museum of Art,is a Treat and so is meeting up and playing with fellow blogger's for a day.

I do miss museum mile in New York, in the long winter months we use to go to the museum's every Sunday, when I was young and continued the practice till I moved from NYC to the West Coast as an adult. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, was a personal favorite. Joseph Campbell when he was a young boy, he and his brother would spend -- [likewise] hours at the Museum of Natural History, he claims that is where history spoke to him and shaped his life for later in his work in the fields of comparative mythology.

Cheers,
joanny

Hi joanny-
Come back! It's still a treat to have all this to take in..It's easy to see how Joseph Campbell, a personal hero, was influenced by the Nat Hist in NY..and everyone's favorite dinosaur..thanks joanny!

I am gasping at the gorgeous collage or whatever at the top of your blog. I don't recall seeing that in the past......is it new and did you create it?

Lyn said...

Hi Lo-
