Precious Time

I came across this wonderful photograph, taken by Yves Lorson at the famous Musée d'Orsay in Paris. As Lorenz Hart once wrote, Isn't It Romantic!

It seemed a perfect complement to the theme of this week's program and I am grateful to the photographer for allowing me to post it here.
