    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

NYDay–Rainy day in Central Park

Last week I walked across to Zabars on the West Side to replenish my Orange Pekoe. It was raining and I was carrying a large umbrella to protect the camera lens. Here are a few views that took my eye:

This Red Maple had somehow survived the wind and the rain


True love cares nothing for the weather. Romeo and Julliet outside the Delacourt Theatre


. . . . and customers, there were none!


Native Newyorkers are not deterred by a spot of rain!

  1. Loved your pictres of New York. I am nt o creative with my camera, but I keep trying

    • Isobel. I am sure you are being too modest. Ideal subjects abound in your part of Florida and the light is always good. If you like, I will post any shots of which you are particularly proud. Ben

  2. We loved the captions. Your park makes poets with the beauty of leaves and lovers and umbrellas. What a gift to embrace life with such exuberance.

    • John and Ann. Living near the Park in my years of lessening mobility is one of the great bonuses of New York City living. Observing the evolution of nature from season to season is an increasing joy for me and there it all is–Just four blocks away! Ben.

  3. That’s not Romeo and Juliet! It’s Ben and Ethel enjoying the rain!
