    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

Disaster! Horse and Rider toppled in Central Park!

 . . . . Just kidding. All the traumatic horse events of the last few week came to mind when I peeped through the fence and saw this--Not even bronze horse can be relied upon! This rider was a Polish King, no less!

N.B.  this statue, well known to Central Park goers, is having a base-lift.

  1. Ben, your post almost gave me heart failure! I spent most of yesterday morning looking at photos of my friend practicing dressage. Immediately thought of a real tragedy. I should have known!!!

    • Sorry, Amy. Having been trampled on and then experiencing the run-away saga of Susan’s ‘Playdoh’, I couldn’t resist a little mischief. Ben

  2. LOL!
