Ha napfényes Vízkereszt
This brief folksy weatherforecast by our great epic poet demonstrates two things: the fact that Latin phrases were still in common use in his time, and that Arany had a great sense of humor: the last word is not misspelled - it purposely rhymes with the rest! See the full story...

Gross Arnold and his Fairyland

Gross Arnold: Birds and Angels
Gross Arnold and his Fairyland

The first time I heard of Gross Arnold was when I received two of his etchings as a wedding gift from my landlady, Fehér Ilonka néni in 1965.  By that time, he was a famous graphic artist with a Munkácsy Prize. On his 90th birthday, December 6th, 2019, his biggest exhibit opened in Budapest.  I wish I could be there to enjoy the beauty of his works.

Snapshots: Hövej, Home of Lace

I visited Hövej in 2013 to see the Szigethy Istvánné’s lace exhibit at the Faluház (Village House) and the Village Museum.  Since then, Mrs. Szigethy’s museum moved to nearby Hegykő where one can see the handiwork of her lifetime, which she began to create as a young girl and which she continues to make to this day. Still, the small village of Hövej comes to my mind often.
