Many thanks to Oriana for turning me on to the Ideas program on the CBC. It is so inspiring, and so different from a lot of programs on NPR. I can't recommend enough the episode "Beauty will Save the World." And speaking of Canada: thank you to the Canadian Opera Company for posting about Mary Heron. And speaking of beauty, a photo from Kate Joyce's recent portfolio taken during our visit to the Wharton Eshrick Museum earlier this year. The leaves were hauntingly translucent and parchment-like.
