We have not had room for a Living section tab in Features, and god only knows we all need a break from our daily routine of eternal war, blood and guts, and geopolitical cutthroat news.
Our front page is so full that material put at the bottom is rarely seen by our busy readers scanning the feature section for the top stories. Hopefully we will find a way to have more of this at the top of the page, the music, movies, art, concerts, archaeology, anthropology and science.
But today we have this from Bente in Denmark, a delightful piece — an instant decision to put it up in World, as it is a universally beautiful production.
We salute all those involved with this artistic home run; and most suitable for a cool, sunny Sunday morning for me in Atlanta with the last of the Spring flower planting awaiting me on the back porch, along with the freshly-washed oriental rug drying in the sun with the help of two fans.
I have an African American church downstairs and their music is about to crank up soon, a mixed melody of sounds, sights and cultures. My Qing Dynasty Buddha is looking at me approvingly, biased I think, due to the success of my first relic restoration of a carved and polychromed gold leaf find that was buried under a layer of dark grey soot.
That was an escapism project for me also, from the daily grind, one which I will try to repeat when I can. Next up are some Viking battle axes that need the electrolysis cleaning to removal all the accumulated dirt and rust before sealing them. But a hesitant Jim is waiting to find someone here who has done it before, so I don’t muck it up.
That’s it, for this Sunday Morning.
