    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Bounce Lake 2 (Updated)

Kiowa sent me  a disc of  his own pictures so that I have been able to fill in some gaps in the narrative and start drafting the last in the series of posts of our Bounce Lake trip.

Recovering wilderness. The greater part of the wilderness we are flying over was logged out over the last six or seven years but is now recovering. Vast areas still, are bare ground or serried rows of seedlings.
