Treasure House --- Day 3/94

Walk: Union Square, Mindful Body
Distance: 2 miles and teach yoga class

                                                            Nicholas Roerich, Himalayas, 1933, w/c

A student friend is just back in class from a trek high in the Nepal Himalayas.  At tea after class his recounting of the excursion put Ciwt in mind of the Russian artist-philosopher-mystic-anthopologist--archaeologist-artist Nicholas Roerich (1874-1947).  Roerich considered the Himalayas a symbol of humanity's hunger for transcendence through beauty and knowledge and called the range the 'Treasure House of the Spirit.'
