    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.

Feeding Frenzy in the Park

On my way to the tennis courts to see Christine play, I came across this robin’s nest precariously balanced on the smooth limb of a Plane tree.  There was so much frenetic fluttering whenever the mother or father flew in with a beakful of insects that a hand-held camera was out of the question. I returned the following day with my tripod, fully expecting the nest to be on the ground and the nestlings dead–but there they were, as active as ever, giving my auto-focus a terrible time. These are the best of a poorly-focused bunch. Click on them for the best view:
