Poem for Saturday, Betrayal, VMFA Micromosaics

Gorgeous weather continued on Friday, so after getting a lot of necessary stuff done in the morning, I went to the mall for a Mewtwo raid, stopped at the post office to mail a package, and went to the park for a nice long walk, on which I failed to catch a Snivy but got to enjoy the beginnings of the turning leaves -- I am depressed that fall begins on Monday.

We had dinner with my parents, then came home and watched the 1983 film version of Betrayal with Jeremy Irons and Ben Kingsley, which I haven't seen since the year it came out. The acting is obviously exceptional and I like getting glimpses of the families and other people caught up in the central disloyalty. Structurally, it's very effective.

Here are some photos from earlier in the summer of Richmond's VMFA exhibit, A Return to the Grand Tour: Micromosaic Jewels from the Collection of Elizabeth Locke, including an original painting and two pieces of jewelry designed from the same illustration of doves around a bowl. These were all souvenirs designed for travelers across the Continent.
