As the full moon ascends we celebrate the topsy turvy nature of life with Purim. This holiday is the Jewish spin on a global rejoicing of the Spring to come. Persian New Year, Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras and Purim coincide by weeks as each culture celebrates the fool as the king and then imbibe lots of booze. I celebrated the break-fast of Taanit Esther with the opening of my show in NYC at the Yeshiva University Museum, in a blizzard. Then, I enjoyed the Tim Burton exhibit at the MoMa. Marveled at Central Park under a foot of snow and then boozed it with friends and watched Olympic curling. Today, I presented the art history of the Book of Esther to a dozen members of suburban synagogue outside of Philly. And so it was written in the Blog of My Days on Purim 14 Adar, 5770
