Pan Points

Pan Sculpture, Dumbarton Oaks, Washington, DC

I returned again to Dumbarton Oaks because the weather was just too beautiful to spend the afternoon indoors.

I’ve been there several dozen times, yet more often than not I spot a feature I’ve never noticed before. In some cases, I think they added or replaced items that were missing or in disrepair. Mostly, though, I think the place is just rich in enough in detail to keep rewarding return visits. In fact, the whole joint is a compelling argument for the concentration of wealth in the hands of people with good taste who are willing to share.

Which direction is your nature pointing you to go?
