from the photo bucket

I was utterly enchanted by this house in Clifton Springs, New York. I would like to wake up in that upstairs room and greet the morning by opening the curtains to let the sunshine in.

I would be wearing a Victorian nightgown. I would also ring up for tea.

A tip of the hat to last night's Tony Awards. #1 Son & I were passing Radio City Music Hall the other evening and I couldn't resist the glam.

We saw "Wicked" on Broadway and I have spent many an hour revisiting the production in my mind. I really loved it. As we exited, I noticed this sign.

I may have to duplicate it over my front door....

I snapped this shot of #1 Son as he strode confidently into the Welcome Center at NYU. We had a fabulous visit to the Tisch School of the Arts.

Presently, #1 Son is on the wait list for the fall. A little schmoozing couldn't hurt, so he made the rounds. I relaxed nonchalantly in lounges and hallways while trying not to infringe on his vibe, and only at the end of our visit chatting up a professor on his behalf.

Seriously, if they can't see what an amazing boy he is, they are undeserving of him.
(-says the mom who is conflicted about wanting him to transfer to a school so far away.)

If I don't succeed as a concert pianist, garden designer, gourmet chef, or art critic, I may try my hand at photography. I am so cutting edge with my point & shoot.

I already know how to use six buttons.

I really like this shot, too. But I forgot to flip it.

Different buttons get different results. I know that much.

Thank you for indulging me.

tell Wease to look at the pic of the house. I was raving about it to her at the wedding reception.

Well, the fact that you know about 6 buttons and are willing to try says that you love photography enough to put up with all the technology required to attain art, at least in this arena. I'll stick to other arenas and just enjoy your labors in this field!

And don't ask me what I'll do since I'll not become a Broadway Tony winner, an acclaimed garden artist (it is art, you know), or have my own rendition of Julia Child's TV show. Guess maybe community theater, backyard putzing, and providing something fun for friends to nibble at my barbecues will have to suffice.
