I am in the middle of another post that just doesn’t want close, or be completed. So I’ll move on and hope to come back to it this week.
A little bit of wonder in the middle of a busy city…called “Alexander’s Garden.”
Woohoo! A pink stretch Mini!
I’ve been catering to a painful back all week, getting better but still unable to do anything too demanding. But I did go into the city last night with my husband, where we met our younger son to see one of the TriBeca film festival movies, “Eclipse.” It was terrific! The music was especially wonderful, and I’m bummed today that I cannot find anyplace to buy Fionnuala Ni Chiosain’s music. Worse, I’ve been reading about both Conor McPherson and Fionnuala Ni Chiosain, who are married, and both are so multi-talented that I just want to go crawl in a dark hole and lick my sorry, untalented wounds. He is a playwright, director, songwriter, and she is a painter (with work in the Irish Museum of Modern Art), violinist, and composer. The music in this movie is just wonderful, especially the choral works that evoke a requiem mass.
Our seats were two rows directly behind the actors (Ciaran Hinds and Aidan Quinn), the director Conor McPherson, and Liam Neesam who must’ve joined them as a supportive Irish friend. It was pretty awesome to be so near them and to realize that we were the first audience to see this film!
And last of all, a visitor to my garden this week:
