Feeling distressed by troubling events, I went searching for solace in beauty.
Sometimes such a quest takes me no further than my backyard, other times an excursion is the best remedy. This time I headed off to the Met museum in NYC. Upon entering there was a cursory inspection of my handbag. My immediate reaction was how easy it would be for someone bent on wreaking havoc among the antiquities to have done so. However, I did not let this thought dampen my enthusiasm for the beautiful objects I expected to see.
