So much to say, no time for now!

I have days worth of posts to make, but because of the volume of things I want to write about, it's going to take me a while because I have a volume of work to do over the next three days before the second chag of Pesach. As such, I'm merely going to leave you with some beautiful artwork that I fell in love with while down in West Palm Beach at a cozy little kosher-style diner with Evan's family. The artist is Arthur Szyk, and this is -- appropriately -- his Passover artwork. Szyk is an amazing artist and I'm blown away that I was ill aware of him until now. But here he is, in all his glory.

I hope everyone had absolutely stellar, welcoming and comforting seders with family and friends. Likewise, Shavua Tov and I hope everyone's enjoying their matzo!

Funny you should mention this artist. I just stumbled upon this while looking up some info at the USHMM site: http://web.ushmm.org/site/apps/ka/ec/product.asp?c=ftILI5PMKoG&b=2264499&en=5eLzEIOjE4JIKSNmE3KFKPPxGfKLIZMxGgLJKVOEIsE&ProductID=456560

Read about the necklace below the image.

OMFG! That is SO amazing. I'm in love with all of Szyk's stuff. And the paper prints aren't that expensive either. That necklace is beautiful, though :)
