Charna came back from Connecticut on the train. She’s become very sophisticated about train riding. This morning I will take her to camp in Port Jervis.

I spent the weekend looking at more images. On Saturday morning I went to the Museum of Sex to see Japanese erotic prints from the Edo era. In order to make the display seem more sexy and less historical the prints were displayed behind peep holes placed at varying heights requiring a lot of bending or standing on tiptoes. The exhibit was titled, "Peeping, Probing and Porn." Oh well.

Walking from the museum to catch a bus I passed a sign that said, "Vaults of Heaven." It was a fabulous exhibit of photographs of churches and cave churches in Turkey, presented by the World Monument Fund. The photos were probably 6 feet by 3 feet and presented sharp, clear details you would never be able to see if you visited the churches. They would be too high or too dark. I felt like I had gone from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Back to the Met on Sunday where I found out all about the Maya kings and gods. More sublime stuff.
