I had the opportunity to observe an amazing dinner party. Intimate, hosted by my friend a Renaissance man and his wonderful psychoanalyst wife, we ( our hosts, my lovely well read wife and beautiful artist daughter and I ) dined with two engineers, world travelers now retired, and two art historians. We spoke of beauty and truth. The value of art, and the meaning of words, Bernini ( 15th century Italian artist ) and art in the expression of the sacred.
What would Freud have thought of General Petraus? Was he the betrayer or the betrayed. What does democracy really mean. Spellbound I observed, savoring the wine, the food, the thought and it hit me. These art historians, much published, at eighty years young were as alive and full of interest as any of us. Their experience, their elegance, their enthusiasm teaches us to never lose the magic of life.
Here are a few images of the magic of Cape May Point.
The light tower in morning fog.
A one legged sand piper, hopping as quickly on one leg as his brethren do on two as they dart in and out feeding and avoiding each incoming wave.
Swans so strong in flight that their wings hum and sing as they fly overhead move effortlessly through the water.
May you embrace life all of your days.
