  • theatre and Concerrts

    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.

Three Peaks Challenge

Well done Lucy!

Gillian is so proud of her daughter, Lucy’s, accomplishment!. She sent me this note and pictures which I am delighted to post. Here’s what she says about it:

“Ben. Pleased to confirm that Lucy has achieved the 3 Peak challenge with the Group supporting the Charity, “Fighting Blindness”.  She climbed Mount Snowdon on Tuesday, Scafell Pike on Wednesday and finally she reached the top of Ben Nevis at 1 pm today!  She also helped guide blind and partially sighted people on the 3 Peaks too. So proud of her – it is a wonderful achievement! ”  Here! here! (Ben)

Footnote: Such are the ironies of this lottery we call “life”, Gillian tells me that her other daughter, Debby, (Lucy’s sister) was declared legally blind in June!
