Above, I have posted an image from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. It is a lar, a Roman household god or spirit. When I walked up to this, it just seemed to vibrate. What a lovely piece, and my grainy photo doesn't do justice to its beauty and grace. It looks for all the world like a tiny little person dancing wildly, holding up a horn of wine and an offering plate. I took many photos at the Met, and many touched me deeply. This one seemed appropriate today, though, as I return home after being away for so long.
So much is going on, and I have so much to tell about my time at retreat and in NYC in general. I will try and add a little bit at a time over the next few weeks.
