Peace Fountain

Urban Outfitters tee and cardigan; Free People shorts; Pregunta sandals from Daffy's; Jessica Simpson hat;
Burberry sunglasses; Dream Mullick necklace

The BF and I stumbled upon the
Cathedral of St. John the Divine by Columbia University this weekend while looking for a place to eat our Hungarian pastries (so good!). In a garden next to the cathedral was the statue pictured below, the Peace Fountain. The Peace Fountain celebrates the triumph of Good over Evil, and "sets before us the world's opposing forces—violence and harmony, light and darkness, life and death—which God reconciles in his peace." I thought this was a good message, especially today.

I love that Cathedral - I visit it practically every time I'm in the city, it's such a beautiful place. And I love the Jessica Simpson hat and the UO cardigan.
