Chester Township, NJ. By Paul Goldfinger.

By ROBERT FROST

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

“Snowstorm”   Soundtrack of  Snow Falling on Cedars.   By  James Newton Howard.

Rain was sweeping across the Grand Canyon, but a huge slice of sunshine made the mesas glow. Mary was on the south rim, not far from Bright Angel Lodge. Taken with my iPhone camera.

Venus de Milo. Greek 130-100 B.C. Louvre Museum. Paris. Photograph by Paul Goldfinger

This ancient Greek sculpture was discovered in 1820 on the island of Milos, in the Aegean, by a peasant who was puttering around in the ruins of the city called Milos. The original name was Aphrodite of Milos. She was the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Venus was the Roman name.

The artist is thought to be Alexandros of Antioch. I can imagine Alexander looking at his model’s indescribable beauty and finding himself at a loss for words. He was speechless, so he did what artists do — he expressed himself through his art. He took a hunk of marble and created this 6′ 8″ tall woman. Her arms were not recovered.

SOUNDTRACK: Frank Sinatra sings about a modern-day Aphrodite who is too beautiful for words. From the film “What Women Want.”

Gettysburg

The battle of Gettysburg was fought during the first three days of July in 1863. There were 51,000 casualties. Next year will be the 150th anniversary. It is a profoundly moving experience to visit there. You can imagine the battle raging, and the statues seem to be alive, especially if you go early in the morning.    — Paul Goldfinger
