People passing through the intersection at Charles and Centre streets recently may have noticed an intriguing banner hanging from the wall above the entrance to the Walters Art Museum . The oversize image depicts a black woman dressed in the manner of a 16 t h century Italian lady-in-waiting, who returns our gaze with an expression of ironic, amused self-awareness. Who is she? Alas, we don't know. The picture is based on a painting attributed to the Italian master Annibale Carracci, probably from the 1580s and possibly completed in Venice, where the artist is known to have traveled during those years and where objects such as the richly ornamented gilt tower clock the woman holds in one hand were common in the homes of that city's wealthy elite.

WASHINGTON - One display case holds the remains of a 15-year-old Anne Arundel County boy, a servant who apparently was murdered and stuffed into a hole scooped out of a dirt cellar. Farther along are the bones of a strapping lad of 12 or 13, with evidence of a raging infection in his lower jaw. He was found in a hastily dug grave in Jamestown, Va., an Indian arrow in his thigh. Even more telling is a baby, born into the wealth and power of Maryland's first family and interred in a costly lead coffin in St. Mary's City.

President-elect Barack Obama has stated that "literacy is the highway to success" and that libraries represent "a window to a larger world." Adviser David Axelrod recently said libraries will be part of the proposed economic stimulus package. As the nation and the world look to a new chapter in history, these statements leave me optimistic. During these tough economic times, library services across the nation are in great demand. Families are examining their budgets and turning to libraries more than ever.

Why is going someplace with you always such an adventure?" It was my daughter's lamentation, expressed at the age of 6, when we got terribly lost going to the Kennedy Center in Washington. It was during our ballet phase. She said it again last year when I took her to the Philadelphia Flower Show. We got terribly lost on the way home, and she huffed at me in too-familiar irritation. But I made the trip to Philadelphia for the flower show with confidence this year, my friend Lisette riding in the seat Jessie had understandably vacated.

PHILADELPHIA -- The most important coming elections for Americans are not the congressional races in 2006 but the Iraqi elections Thursday. They hold the key to whether U.S. troops can leave Iraq without disaster. U.S. military commanders have been saying for months that no military "victory" can be achieved in Iraq, no matter the rhetoric from Washington. Only a political solution will undercut Iraqi violence. Bitterly feuding Iraqi factions must agree on a formula to share power - and oil money.

While standing on the porch of his renovated yellow- and aqua-colored Victorian house in rural Shawsville, Danny Simpson says, "Observation comes natural to me." The diverse landscape that he observes includes a new Shell gas station across Route 23, still a country road. In the northern part of Harford County, Simpson stands on land that's part of the Piedmont Plateau. This fairly high elevation is flatter than the Blue Ridge foothills of his Martinsville, Va., hometown. Artist Simpson has made a home in Shawsville for the past 17 years, watching trees, fields, landscapes and streams on his daily jog. Now, he is putting seasonal and timeless images into original stained-glass pieces he sells from his studio and gallery at the rate of about one a month.

WASHINGTON - For the last 300 years, windows have reflected the ever-changing appearance and aspirations of the American home. The so-called "eyes" of a structure, windows have evolved from the small leaded glass casements of Puritan homes to the iconic walls of glass of the 1950s to a futuristic model equipped with a computer, video or television screen. The National Building Museum has mounted a major exhibition on the crucial role that windows have played in shaping U.S. architecture and domestic lifestyles.

The teacher asked a group of Walters Art Museum spectators who were just old enough to shed baby teeth to explain what made the piazza in the Renaissance painting View of the Ideal City so perfect. "Nobody is shooting anybody else," said 9-year-old Alexanderia Williams, of Dallas F. Nicholas Elementary School in Baltimore's Charles Village. Such unusual - even disturbing - observations are what museum educators have come to expect from children taking part in a pilot literacy and arts program called Mummies, Manuscripts and Myths.

Recently I attended a self-assertiveness workshop called "Taking Charge of Your Life," which I really didn't want to go to, but my wife talked me into it.There were 15 of us and we met in a classroom at a local community college. The room was very hot and I wanted to open a window.But then I thought: What if the others don't want the window open? What if they look at me funny? What if I open the window and someone walks over and slams it shut and glares at me?Suddenly a small, balding man with stooped shoulders entered the room and slammed his briefcase on the desk.

ALEXANDRA TOWNSHIP, South Africa - The children on Seventh Avenue stop playing and look up, as surprised as if they just saw a meteor drop out of the sky. Could this be right? A van of white tourists is on a Sunday afternoon drive through their black township. This is, after all, Alexandra, a no-go area known for carjackings, killings and cholera. A place so feared by Johannesburg residents that many blacks don't dare to visit and whites won't drive within a mile of its border. But the van stops, and a tour guide steps out along with eight men and women with cameras slung from their shoulders and explains this is the street where Nelson Mandela once lived.

WASHINGTON -- For the occasion Fran Boyd of Baltimore wore a black suit peppered with silver specks and big, gold earrings and sat at the table marked RESERVED at the very front where she could see her own life on the theater-sized movie screen. It was an odd enough occasion yesterday afternoon, a publicity event for an HBO mini-series staged in a U.S. Senate hearing room and attended by members of Congress, by Kweisi Mfume, head of the NAACP, by drug policy people, show-biz people, reporters.
