    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.

Artwork – Oak flooring

I was sitting comfortably under my favourite oak tree in the park on a sweltering day last week. My paints were at the ready but I was begining to doze off. Squirrels were busy chewing the ripening acorns way above me and debris was wafting down all around. Mid-doze, I was struck very smartly on the head by a dead branchlet, 10 inches long and about 2 inches round! A moment’s panic over, I looked at the ground around my chair to find the culprit and this a sketch of approximately what I saw:
