The Walters

I went to The Walters with a couple of friends today to look at Medieval Art. Lots of Virgin Maries about. I was especially intrigued by an ivory carving showing the Annunciation and conception of Christ, with God the Father in the upper corner, His long, flowing beard zooming towards the Blessed Virgin in the shape of a dove — God the Holy Spirit about to conceive God the Son. His beard. Yup. Also lots of beautiful illuminated psalters, missals, and scriptures.

I also went to the garage sale at MICA and got me a rocking TV chair: the kind that sits on the floor and rocks. Ten dollars, but I had to carry it on the train all the way home to Little Italy, and it still smells of cigarette smoke. But it’s nice and comfy and I like it. So there.
