a delicious day.
we took it very slow. and things are getting easier. most noticeably because we are getting out a little – a little further each day too.
we took a stroll across washington square park (On Our Own!) and rested a lot (tis strange how long it takes to get anywhere when one has to rest at highly frequent intervals but we did manage it).
mC came to meet us at NYU where we spent some time with friends. while we waited for her we sat here on this window seat and read a while.
this was the view out of the window from that lovely spot. a rare sight – a back garden in manhattan.
then – back chez nous – Another Parcel (we Adore a Parcel)! some more delicious sunday supplements from the English newspapers courtesy of our splendid friends @ilicco and @kate_day. so kind. especially good to ward off any potential blues on the horizon. one cannot be sad with the british telly reviews of Downtown Abbey, darlings.
GB arrived! now GB is our Most Traveled (American, so we are only using this spelling) Friend. he flew in from the Other Coast to come and stay and cheer us up for a couple of days.
and he brought us a present From JAPAN (we are So Lucky to have all these lovely friends bringing and sending delicious gifts – we are truly grateful in our time of confinement)
such magic to suddenly hear a grand piano when turning the corner under washington square park arch and – oh – a beautiful, melodic, transforming experience………..Chopin, a little Mozart and then, seductively, the opening bars from The Hunger (ah, Deneuve…….uncroyable, mes amies).
