For the past few years I have been involved with a wonderful place - Hypatia-in-the-Woods - - located on Hammersley Inlet, in the lower Puget Sound, near Shelton, WA.

It shelters women seeking a quiet refuge for themselves and…Continue

The marvels of Persian illustration are on full display - magnificent craftsmanship, tiny delicate renderings of…Continue
