    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.

Indian Summer’s Day in Central Park (or Venice?)

We were enjoying a string of  80 degree days up to last week. No sign of Fall yet. Here are some pictures of people taking  advantage of  the extra sunny days. Central Park must be one of the world’s most popular backdrops  for wedding photos, winter or summer. Fantasy is encouraged too. How about a leisurely hour on the canals of venice? It can be fitted in this afternoon if you wish.

Sunday in the park with fido. Among the milling crowds, who could ask for a more secluded spot?
