A Postcard from New York City

WP and I just returned from three days in New York City. I am all  lit up about the exhibition Modern Life: Edward Hopper and His Time.


This one really wowed me. I'd never seen it before. It's as close to a portrait than any other Hopper I've seen.  A ballerina mending a slipper?

More on the exhibition in the next couple of days.  It's good to be back in Massachusetts, though much colder than the city. We stayed in Soho and got around Little Italy and Chinatown a good deal.  The hustle and bustle is interesting to watch as is the experience of looking squarely into a trash bin full of live frogs!  :-) 


And what do the Smiths have to do with New York City? Nothing...and...everything.

Smile as if you're Mona Lisa, kids.

"And if you've got five seconds to spare I'll tell you the story of my life..."

  3. Sounds like an amazing trip for [basically] a country gal - I'm totally jealous, and looking forward to seeing the rest of the evidence of your transgressions!

  5. Aah, The Smiths. The soundtrack of my 80's. Untouchable.

    3 days in New York? Sounds amazing. I can't imagine.
