Well, the food I had cooked for Rosh ha Shanah got eaten. I wore my segula/amulet dress while I blew shofar. There have been so many re-postings of The easiest dress in the world that I expect to see versions of it where ever I travel. I was impressed to see it mentioned on a Danish sewing blog, it would be nice to know what they were saying about the dress.
The shofar blowing that took place while I was wearing that dress went really well.
Today it was time to go on a small adventure. So my husband, my youngest and I went cross-town to the Met. After countless visits we finally went up to the roof garden.
Often there are exhibits of sculptures, this summer there was an installation that referenced both Persian miniatures and the violence in the area.
What was really spectacular though, was the view.
I know, all of the photos look right out of travel post cards.
One of the walls of the roof area was mirrored.
Here we are, slightly distorted in the mirror with the big city behind us.
Another lovely surprise in the museum was seeing this portrait of my mother in law.
Ok, not really but is is awfully close. My late mother in law even used to hold her hand in the same way .
I always love seeing this bit of staircase from the original Gothic revival museum building.
We walked home through the park and across to Amsterdam Avenue. I wanted to share some of the details I saw along the street.
