• Upcoming trips

    I have booked flights to London and will be staying at Royal National Hotel, Bedford Way, London from 2nd May to 14th May. The Hotel telephone no is: 020 7637 2488. Hope to see you all during this time.

  • Theatre and Music

    April 12 Listened to the wonderful playing of Jeremy Denk at the Peoples' Symphony Concert. His programme include works by Mozart, Ligeti, Byrd and Schumann--all played with his extraordinary expressiveness.

    April 9th Margaret Geller, renowned astrophysicist, gave a wonderfully understandable talk on her work of mapping the universe beyond the sight of the Hubble telescope to the time of the Big Bang. The talk was the last of the series of "Great Thinkers of Our Time" mounted by Hunter College's 'The Writing Center'. The speaker included some remarkable images of the universe up to 14 million light years away!

    April 5 The incomparable Musicians from Marlboro gave the Peoples' Symphony Concert on Saturday. Their program: A quintet by Max Regar; Dvorak's "Cypresses for String Quartet" and Schubert's Octet for Winds and String". Christine was ecstatic!

Ben’s Page


The content of this bBenbloglog is directed mainly, but not entirely, towards friends and travelling companions who may now still be numbered among the hundreds in spite of the attrition of the years . Their varied interests cover the world’s spectrum. The aim is a personal one,  it is to keep the conversation and exchange of ideas going for as long as I am able. The blog, then, will give viewers a fairly continuous idea of where I am and what I am up to so that they can respond when an interest is sparked. I hope that my camera will help prompt your comments and e-mails

The “Recent Posts” widget (sidebar) on the right will give you an idea of the travels I have  just made and of  my New York impressions. Below this is an index of my ‘Memoirs’ chapters which can now be read in the order in which they were written.

On the left-hand side you will see a notice of my upcoming trips followed by a notice  of my theatre- and concert-going and what my thoughts of the performances were. Below this, there is  a widget which allows those interested to register and receive notices of new posts automatically.

Notes:Click on the pictures, most will enlarge to full screen and give much greater detail
