We Meet Again Tour – 27 May 2018

IMG-7453The Sunday, May 27 tour began with worship at First Presbyterian Church in Whitestone. In the evening, with recommendations from son Sean and friend Patrick in hand, Tricia and I went to the Circle in the Square Theater to see Once on This Island.

A marvelous show! Well staged. Well played. A wonderful evening.

We’re on our way to buying the soundtrack.

We Meet Again Tour – 29 December 2017, #2

On a cold December night, Tricia and I wandered out of the warmth of the Shire to see Mark Rylance in Farinelli and the King.

We chose the play because Rylance was the star (the King). It was great.

Back for a weekend tour 3

SweatSean and I went to see Sweat, a new play written by Lynn Nottage and directed by Kate Whoriskey. It is a powerful story of long-time friends whose relationships fray and tear as economic change leads to layoffs and picket lines. There are strong performances; it is worth seeing, a good venture back on to Broadway (as an audience member).

See you along the Trail.

A Tolkein moment in University Circle

While walking through University Circle in Cleveland, I again spotted a variation on the theme of two towers.

Two TowersThere are obvious parallels to the two towers of Central Park. The Upper West Side of Broadway also has two towers.

See you along the Trail.

Blossoms in the gloaming

Making my way up Broadway last night,
the tower of Riverside Church caught my attention.
Without a clue,
I nonetheless played
with angles and
with settings.

Most of the efforts now reside in the recycle bin,
unless they have always been deleted.

This one seemed interesting enough to share.

Tricia arrived in New York today for a variety of work-related events. They start tomorrow. This was a day to explore.

While waiting for her, I made my way to the dry cleaner and managed to figure out a way to identify which key opens which lock.

When she arrived, we walked to lunch at Ajanta – good stuff, definitely a place to return.

An effort to visit Riverside Park failed when the entrance that we selected was closed. We did see the Hudson from a distance and New Jersey from an even greater distance.

Our explorations then took us north to visit Fairway Market. Quite an experience – even though they exploit octopi.

While wandering, we connected with a friend of Tricia’s brother. He was doing a music show at the Atria Senior Living Community. We went and checked that out. He took us to dinner at Hampton Chutney – we ate dosa (light crispy, sour-dough crepe made from rice) for the first time. Another keeper.

The evening was gorgeous so we walked up Broadway from 83rd to La Salle.

Oh yeah, I bought a large screen LCD TV in there too.

A good day. With 22,217 steps – even though I did not get to the gym.

See you along the Trail.
