Metropolitan Museum

Posted on the 08 November 2011 by Elizabethwix


Walked across the park in the warm morning

with the leaves at their giddy yellow best


to the quite different palatte of the museum.


New Islamic galleries awash with treasures.

Reminded me of John Masefield's 

I must go down to the sea again

to the lonely sea and the sky

And all I ask is a tall ship

and a star to steer her by.....

For me it's not remotely the sea, but the idea of longing awakened by art  and books


Just imagine living in the Damascus Room when one can't possibly go to real Damascus just now.


No good wandering round the museum taking pictures of stuff


except I couldn't resist this luster glass cup. Abbasid Period 9th or 10th century. Iran or Iraq


A good place to go to study things


and talk about them with friends.
