A Surreal Week

The light has been extraordinarily clear and bright this week.

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.

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

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.
