A Surreal Week

The light has been extraordinarily clear and bright this week.


A nice leaf on the windowsill.


Same leaf on the windowsill with the light reflected off a new tall building blazes in from the north in the late afternoons.


Our dim little counter gets lit up – had I known the light would fall there I would have arranged a better still life.. This is sort of brownish in honor of the meatloaf that is about to get made…


Light on the High Line on election afternoon when I was beginning to feel wobbly.


Last licks of flowers from my son’s garden the day after…


Apprentice flower arranger.

So the week continued with lots and lots of walks and sights seen.


A house to desire in Greenwich village


and leaves in the gutter


not to mention the hats on 5th Avenue


and heaven in the New York Public Library…


and an intimation of mortality.


But the light! – and a man leaving.


All this emotion and seeing things required a little respite in the form of Tea & Sympathy where we ate


very stodgy puddings and drank tea.
