Back from a trip and tired

Elevated Moon, 1976, serigraph

We’ve returned from some time spent in Egypt touring the ancient sites and wearing ourselves out. Egypt was a lot of work, but it was worth it. I spent years teaching art appreciation and art history and this first civilization in history always was a favorite. It was a revelation to see monuments, temples, tombs in person rather than as slides projected in a dark classroom. So many wonders: how did they do it? how did they last so long? why does it seem like the art never changes over three thousand years? And of course, we cruised the Nile while I thought about Agatha Christie and half expected to see Hercule Poirot strolling on the deck.

    Sounds like a fabulous trip! That is my sister’s dream – to travel to Egypt. Maybe someday. I, too, love Agatha Christie’s “Death on the Nile” and it would have been on my mind, too! Thanks for sharing.
