this is on my 'daily dose' listings ~ each day there is a different work featured from the permanent collection ~ imagine THAT job!
I so enjoy clicking and not knowing what work of art will be there..as a daily present for my spirit...
try it ~ and maybe more and more will also take it as a daily dose of wonder..

Your threads are like little reminders to stop and smell the roses. I absolutely love The Met. My first New York style hot dog was on the steps of The Met. No matter how many times I visit that place or haw many works of art I see, sitting there with Phil soaking in the city is what I will always remember. _________________ "It's watery....and yet there's a smack of ham."
