    June 13 Picnicked on The Great lawn in central Park to the music of The New York Philharmonic led by James Gaffigan. Great program with spectacular fireworks after the concert. The concert included two pieces composed by students from its education program — remarkable works (Bernstein style) from composers  11 and 12 years old respectively! They took their bows from the stage!

    June 20 The forecast rain didn’t happen so, having lined up for senior tickets in the morning, we were able to see an uninterrupted ‘Othello” in Central Park last night. The set and costumes were magnificent and the actors did their best but the direction gave  a somewhat bland production. I personally thought that some players were miscast and this distracted from the illusion.

NY Day –Annie –Hospital and Stephen Burrows

The day before Ethel’s accident, we had a surprise visit from an old UN colleague of mine: Annie Zimmermann from Buenos Aires. We happily chatted away about our lives since we last met (In Argentina some ten years ago) over a bottle of wine (Malbec, naturally!)

I was taken up for the following days with Ethel’s hospital repair work of course, but, during Bonnie’s visit, I was able to get out for a bit while she looked after her aunt Ethel. On one of these occasions, I went to the Museum of the City of NY which is situated on Fifth Avenue just a few blocks north of Mt. Sinai hospital.

I was intrigued by the spiky designs of Fashion designer , Stephen Burrows. He is the Fauvist of the design world; he uses flat saturated colours with startling effect. It would take a brave woman to wear his clothes on the street!
