I arrived home from Moscow last night, and I'm still a bit jet-lagged, so only one picture for now. This wonderful statue is one of 76 statues in the Moscow Metro station "Ploschad Revolutsii". The Metro is simply unbelievable. The stations are like museums; each has a theme, and some of them are simply filled with astonishingly lovely works of art.
This statue of a soldier and his dog is one of four similar statues in this station, you will notice that the dog's nose is shiny....because almost everyone gives it a gentle touch as they pass by; this is for good luck.
Moscow is an incredible city, and I was privileged to have a wonderful and thoughtful guide to show me so much in such a short time, (Thank you, Julia!!) I have lots of pictures that I'll be posting, but this is one of my favorites; a little Moscow doggy that everyone who passes by touches, and maybe loves a little bit.

Today was my second day of teaching, (this is me with today's students), this has been such an incredible experience, with a very talented and patient group of students. For some reason, today I was a walking disaster...dropping hot beads on the floor, etc. Fortunately, no damage was done, and no one was hurt, at least not badly hurt, thank goodness.These wonderful people have a good sense of humor, and I'm grateful for that! One more day, and then I'll so some sightseeing and *ahem* shopping. Just a bit of shopping.

And Joanne, as always....you and your studio are a joy.
Now I'm going to have a beer and start packing for Russia. Have a great week, everyone!!
