    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.

  1. Gorgeous pictures, Ben! And, you are looking quite marvelous! Have a wonderful time in London. Love you! Bonnie

  2. I was very happy to see that the wrens have re-occupied their house on the huge pine-tree in the front of our house. They have been coming back for about 5 years now. Their busy-ness and chirping are very welcome and also much fun to see the new generation appear after the eggs have hatched. It is a little early for me to put up my humming bird’s feeder. When the vines on my back fence produce their huge orange blossoms the little hummers will be there and also to sip the sugar water in their feeder. I believe spring is here at last.
