    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 – Late Fall in the Park, etc.

I love the changing seasons and the infinite mood changes they bring to towns and countryside. Especially my countryside: Central Park. I could never get used to the permanent summer that many of our friends hanker after. I suppose it comes from being born in Britain which used to be a land of  very distinct seasons until global warming began to interfere with them.

Here are some random pictures taken during the last two or three weeks:

Ethel about to leap over the net in celebration of the end of the tennis season. An ambulance was standing by.

Late Fall in the Park

Fall plantings around the trees on 86 Street

Fall bargains on 86 Street. The line started the night before the shops opened!

Left behind! This chap is still suffering from an over-indulgence on Haloween.

And finally, here is a cute little bee to remind us that Spring is not far behind! Picture was sent by proud grandmother, Jenny orchard.

What's my name?
