Stephen Looks Great

Yesterday Bart & I went up to Pound Ridge to visit our friends Kevin & Stephen - it was wonderful to see Stephen making a speedy recovery from a major operation 3-4 weeks ago - he's driving, cooking, and reading again. Here he is enjoying the scrumptious lunch he prepared for us:

The view from the dining room window. Deer are running rampant in the area and clearing the undergrowth, not great for the trees.

Kevin, Stephen, and Bart chat over lunch:
Bailey, Kevin and Stephen's dog, has the loveliest coat of white & brown fur...

Saturday evening, setting the stage for a Halloween Party... More pictures ot this tomorrow...

Spring Ahead, Fall Back..

After my Halloween revelry, and extra hour of sleep hit the spot. Still have a slight cold, but I'm nonetheless headed up to Westchester today to visit some friends, Stephen and Kevin, in the woods of Pound Ridge. Stephen is making a speedy recovery from a head operation after a fall. My friend Doug, over in London, is also recovering nicely from a bad car accident a few weeks back.. The body's ability to heal is something wondrous...

My sister Deena and my Mom saw Barack Obama speak this week - he was stumping for local candidates near Deena's home in Mesa, Arizona. Here are two photos Deena took:

What an awesome photo, of the California fire. And what an intense week it's been, 5-6 projects, putting out fires, and an avalanche of company earnings releases. Tomorrow night is my Halloween party. Woo hoo!

Happy B i rthday, Fernando!!!!

Fernando is one of the most interesting people I know. Hard to believe I've only known him two years - I met him and his partner Sunil through Denis, a close friend of mine from Paris who was visiting that summer.

Since I don't have a picture of Fernando at work, here's someone very cool born on the same day, only 16 years earlier. In operatic garb, to boot. Kevin Kline actually does look quite a bit younger, though his long and versatile career stretches back several decades. Perhaps my favorite moment is his turn as Otto is 'A Fish Called Wanda' - he was fond of remarking that his name 'means eight in Italian' : - )

The John Bond Trevor Children Do Not Play

OK, maybe they do. Or did. In any case, they lived well, in a mansion by the Hudson River, now part of the Hudson River Museum...

That's Hopi talk for 'Life Out Of Balance'. Finally saw Koyaanisqatsi the acclaimed, non-narrative ecological documentary/video trip from 1983 that uses sped-up images and an insistent Philip Glass musical score to juxtapose the grandeur of unspoiled nature and mankind's frenetic lifestyle and often-destructive nature...

Half The Planet

is Asian. Last night I drank mango and passion fruit martini's at Asia Society's LGBT night, third Friday of every month up on 70th and Park. This morning Bart came by from an impromptu brunch and, among other things, we visited the Rubin Museum on 17th & 7th, which I didn't even know existed, and which has a spectacular Himalayan Art collection. And last Sunday Fernando, Sunil, and took in the Met's own vast Asian collection...
