My new obsession has taken the form of the Metropolitain museum (or going repeatedly to it), or as the New Yorker call it the “Met”. I excuse myself for the million of photos in advance as there is too much much to see, and be inspired. I actually even decided to have several post from that museum as I have by now gone three times, (trust me there will be many more…) and too much to share in one post. So I went the first time to see the very much talked about exhibition China Through the Looking Glass. I have since re-saw it twice properly. It is just so rich wonderfully magic a “bewitching” exhibit. However I also went to see a one room exibit that is the Van Gogh flowers and specifically the Iris flowers (been my favourite flowers..) I had to see it!!

The films were selected by the director Wong Kar Wai, they made real sense in the exhibit. I so need to find a dvd rent store to watch all of those! Here is the actress Anna May Wong, she was so stylish and elegant!  IMG_4848
