Happy birthday - youngster. We have a print of the Virgine del rocca over our fireplace.


and one of the comnforts and delights that I have in being here is the chance to visit the NG often. The Sainsbury wing, since that is where my tastes lie, is a place of worship, silence and contemplation. (But I am miffed we didn't get included in your tour :))

So this is what I have to look forward to should I reach old age - religious experiences, and indulgent patisseries ... or are these related? Happy birthday Jim ;-)

Happy birthday - sounds you had a fab time


Happy birthday, young man! :-) (Must escape the grandchildren for a bit next time I'm down - need to visit the NG again)


I was in the Sainsbury Wing the week before you!! I loved it, although I have to say the 11 year old tugging my arm was a bit of a distraction. I'm going to a theology conference in London on my own in June so might make a detour there again.

However my favourite painting....in another part of the building....was the group portrait of the Moravian Brethren, including Count Nicolaus von Zinzendorf....did you see that one?
