The winter of 2007 has been wonderfully full, too full to blog about yet. To fill in the gap, here is one of my all time favorite paintings, Fra Angelica's Annunciation at the top of the staircase of the San Marco monastary in Florence. When I first saw it 12 years ago it knocked me over, and it continues to whenever it pops up, which it often does at the most interesting times and in the most interesting places.

Happy holidays to all!
