    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 – 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.
