Season's Greetings

Hank Kolodziej (1958)

After the bustle of the week and the crises of the year, the streets and shops of the city have become silent.

A Boy with a Lesson-book

Jean-Baptiste Greuze (1757)

On this quiet evening of reflection and work my time is made more bright by Lorraine Hunt Lieberson’s rendition of Handel’s Arias, a candle on my table, and a glimmer of hope for my mind’s eye.
