    Feb 3 - Feb 13 Caribbean cruise
  • theatre and Concerrts

    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

Snow in the North Woods

Christine had never been to the North Woods in Central Park. She is far from being alone. Few from the east side bother to walk north-west. Those who do find a quiet oasis in the city with gurgling brook and little waterfalls in the Spring and Summer, seemingly miles from the noise of city bustle. In the Winter, it turns into a fairy land:
