Amidst the high rise buildings , in one of busiest sections of a large city is a jewel, a haven, an oasis.
The University of Pennsylvania's Archaeology and Science Museum, a Beaux-Arts style building.
When needing a respite from the sterile environment of the hospital, I grab a lunch from one of the trucks and head for the garden. The reflecting pond filled with Koi, the sculptures and Tiffany mosaics transport me to another more gracious time.
Enter with me, this lovely portico, take a deep breath and a seat on a marble bench in one of the alcoves. Immerse yourself in a place where there is beauty and serenity in every direction.
Pan orchestrates the Koi.
Leave to the angels, the world to shoulder.
See. That's better, isn't it?

This music goes so well with the garden. Enjoy.
