Two pictures taken this evening on 5th Av. platform. I have not done any BBs in over a week, close to two. Joe, Marie's father, passed away two weeks ago. In the meantime I also moved office building and am gettin accustomed to new sorroundings. I am finally getting better from whooping cough - I am still a bit tired and need to get out and exercise more. Kid soccer also keeping me busy.
I love soccer and canot wait for the World cup this summer.
So art, slowly.
I miss our interaction and your inspiration. Thanks for coming by.
Here is my son Greg playing Hendrix influenced "Hey Joe' with his friend. This is his first video.

BBs - evening commutes this week.
Went to MoMA yesterday and saw the preview of the Cartier-Bresson exhibit. Wonderful large selection of small prints. So many that we had a visual overload and will need to return next week. All B&W images.
While I was ill I saw a kind hearted movie on BlueRay - "Taking Woodstock." There was a peaceful scene in the movie where uin the background on a hill above the farm where Ravi Shankar played on stage. This led me to investigate sitar music again, an instrument that years ago I found extremely grating. Less famous than Ravi is Nikhil Banerjee, a quiet master who hated to be recorded and who died in 1986. If you have an open mind listen to this. There is a wonderful selection of of his taped live concerts available.
Have a great weekend.
