    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

NY Day – Easter in the Park with Holly

I spent Easter Sunday in Central Park with my nephew’s (Colin) daughter Holly and her friend David. We set out with the intention of  photographing the hats in the Easter parade but we were distracted by all the happenings in the Park and arrived at the parade when it was practically finished. It was a wonderful Spring day; the Magnolias were just reaching their peak of perfection and the Cherries were full of blossom and even the Redbuds were beginning to sprout.
