Mary and Martha

See http://coffeeteabooksandme.blogspot.com/2007/06/summer-of-my-mary-heart.html for a contemplation on Mary and Martha. The painting is Christ in the House of Mary and Martha by the great Spanish painter of the 17th century, Diego Velasquez. Christ is in the room in the background with Mary. Note that the dress is contemporary with Velasquez's time, indicating that the difference in attitudes of Mary and Marth is an ageless problem, as does the post at Coffee Tea Books and Me.
