Since I complained about a representation gone awry, I will try to show you now what I thought was done very well. You can click on any of them for more detail, but I figure a little thumbnail will do for now. One of the guards at the museum saw me take a photo … More perhaps i owe you some good ones
When imitation is the poorest form of flattery; when representation should mean so much more. We went to the MFA’s Art in Bloom exhibit yesterday. Here is one of the works that is supposed to [let’s use the word] correspond to a painting. We can talk about what it is and then I’ll reveal the painting. … More when art is the poorest imitation of life
I heard a woman calling today. I really hoped to hear “Polo!”, but instead, I heard “He’s coming back soon!” And when he came back, his mother (I presume) said, “I’m making macaroni and cheese for lunch, okay?”, which is funny, if it’s true that Marco Polo brought pasta to Europe. Or not. But here … More Marco!
This holiday has been interesting in so many ways. I was very cognizant of how many different roles I play. (Yes, of course, that’s a reference to W. Shakespeare’s birthday? What else?) I have been shifting somewhat not-seamlessly between (in absolutely no order; maybe I should just do it alphabetically as not to assign importance … More what am i–chopped liver?
A friend posted on Facebook a few days ago: The 7 stages of pre-Passover prep:1. Dread2. Denial3. Resentment4. Capitulation5. Panic6. Frenzy7. ExhaustionWhat stage are you up to? I responded that I’m an early achiever. I already reached exhaustion before the panic and frenzy. Usually, we ask the question about why this night is different at … More it’s the night before and i really know what’s different
This morning, there was a knock at the door. That’s not unusual, but the person who came was not someone we see that often. He lives here in town, but had just come back from a trip to NY and saw someone we know from many many years ago. Actually, it’s a couple I had … More coincidence? i think not
That’s really quite curious. Perhaps, Child#4, you would say it’s a fruitian slip. I did mean to write “reading”, but, of course, what a pun. A friend asked on Facebook what we’re reading to get ready for Pesach. I didn’t answer because I wasn’t really reading anything per se for the holiday except tons of … More what am i readying?
Today was a gorgeous day outside. It felt like punishment to be inside the house, even though I felt obligated to carry on with my Passover preparations, the time when we Jewish housewives almost always fail to note the difference between dirt and hametz, the leavened products that we are to refrain from eating and … More because there’s always something else to do
Last Friday (wow, already a week ago?!), my father and I did his morning circuit, which consists of going to his deli to pick up food for Shabbat and then to the bakery. Of course, he could buy his challah at the deli, but he is a people person, and he has to go see … More visiting the happy
I made all kinds of inquiries about where to get my camera fixed, how long it would take, etc. I was not having much luck finding a place that would get it back before the upcoming holiday. Gotta have my camera for that, even though everyone else has. I took off the lens, cleaned everything in … More what did i say about old dogs, after all?
