In heavy rain we visited the World Trade Center site.
Despite all the tourists, it was stunningly quiet. Reminded
me of visiting Dachau when I was twenty.

Stumbled into a great shop called Evolution in Soho --
a single-aisle treasure trove of all things skeletal
and entomological. One of my favorite items was
a life-sized paper skeleton kit! The massive (moving van sized)
spiders set in resin made my entire body crawl....
P. bought me this stunning pendant:

It's a butterfly wing.

  1. What a beautiful necklace! I've been enjoying the butterfly migration here in San Antonio as of late. They are magical little creatures.

    You two made me laugh out loud with your comments on my blog. Thanks for the smile!

  2. That butterfly wing looks like your morning glories!
