A couple of weeks ago I went to Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral in Brooklyn Heights to attend an evening of prayer for peace in Syria. Gregory Mansour, the Maronite bishop, had invited church members and representatives from the Jewish and Muslim faiths, as well as kids, families, some diplomats, and journalists. The church is full. In between psalms, representatives deliver speeches. They talk about the Syrian people, begging for peace for them. Their need, their thirst is ours. “Somehow I believe we all originate from Syria,” says the Muslim representative before leading us into the Lord’s prayer.

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” ― Mother Teresa

"The one thing that I have grown into, is working with things that have been used before. They have a symbolic value, you know, or meaning… They represent the people who are suffering. Because in their younger life, when [these materials] are ok, there is a lot of activity going on in them. But when they get old they are discarded, and that's the time when I intervene, looking for a way to uplift them." The man who speaks like this is El Anatsui. Born in Ghana in 1944, El Anatsui is a sculptor living in Nigeria, where he works with his many assistants on what could be defined an "art of resurrection."

Flipping through the look books and runway slideshows, flooding my mind with images from the recent New York Fashion Week, I am imbued with a spirit of simplicity and plain craft in the lines of women’s wear. There is a quieter regard set forth in the common trends of dark coverage, key holed light of skin, and shades of layers. In the caution there is a calm strength emerging from behind the simple silhouettes and black tailoring.
