    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.

NY Day – Misinformation & Rites

As the stucture below my balcony grew and grew, it became plain that this was never intended to be re-assembled underground as one of the tunnelers had informed me. A much better source tells me that it is the above-ground part of a massive conveyor belt that will eventually connect up with a below-ground portion. And, when completed, it will bring up the drilling debris and load it directly onto trucks in a continuous process.

The Rites of Spring . . .

Activity in the Conservatory Gardens, Central Park

Seeking worms and mates

  1. Beautiful “The Rites of Spring” photos. Even the “Misinformation” has some blue sky.

  2. Really like the “Willows…” photo. Much activity in the sun in NY, while in Scotland we trudge through the snow. (well, nearly – there is still some on the hilltops!)
