Still Loving Fall…
To Watch: “A Star is Born”- theater. Soundtrack outstanding. Gaga great. Cooper hot. Dice Clay surprisingly able. Movie- doesn’t quite hit the climax it needed. But, that being said, I enjoyed it. Just not a great film.
To See Live: Goo Goo Dolls- Beacon Theater NYC Dizzy up the Girl 20th Anniversary Tour. I love live music, and the Beacon is a great place to experience it. Really good concert.
To Read: “Little Fires Everywhere” Celeste Ng. I’m liking this author- she is really nailing the family sage angst for these times. I think it’s worth a read.
To Visit: Road shows for University of Virginia and Northwestern. But- on a good note, I am now done with the parental portion of road shows.
To Can’t Believe I’m Watching: “A Million Little Things”. I cant believe I’m watching this show. This is not a good show. Yet, I am sucked in.
To Look at: Richard Stankiewicz Sculpture from the 1950s-1970s, Washburn Gallery. I didn’t love this work- too dark (not visually, metaphorically) but it was a great representation of the post war years, and it still holds up.
To Look at Also: Ewa Bathelier La Suite Galleria Ca’ d’Ora. This gallery happened to be next door to the gallery I went to and I sort of loved her work because I thought it was pretty. Nothing more, nothing less
To Visit: Chelsea Market. This is a “mall” filled with with little food shops and some cool stores, and a flea market of sorts – Artist and Flea-(nothing is used- it’s just mainly artisan made and really cool). I bought some Kusmi tea at Chelsea Market Basket- It’s from France and I have always heard how good it is but never tried it. If you like tea, it’s really worth it. I tried Russian Morning #24, which is a combo of black teas. I also wondered around Posman Books and Bowery Kitchen Supply. This place gets crowded, but I love it.
Wow Moment: My daughter sent in her first college application. I’m still in shock.
Food for thought: I am slowly catching up on TV- so I was watching an episode of Modern and Family, and there was an episode about grand gestures. Now I know I didn’t coin this phrase, but I find it odd that I have been talking about this for the past month and then theirs a TV episode the idea…
I am slowly playing catch up with my life, but things are a little hectic around Chez Waking….more about that in weeks to come.
To Better Days….
