Snow on Smith Street
A male and female cardinal search for an afternoon snack.
Our neighbor often serenades the block with songs from the 70’s (sometimes at 7 in the morning) while sitting outside his apartment building. He has a voice like Jimmy Durante.
Tonight I attended a free large-scale light installation at Columbia University’s Lenfest Center for the Arts called Waterlicht, which means “water light” in Dutch.
Waterlicht is a three-day only installation designed by Dutch artist Dan Roosengaarde.
More details can be found at the link below. From my experience, registering is not required. Just show up and enjoy!
As We Fly
Last night my sister treated me to an Orville Peck show at the Music Hall of Wiliamsburg. He was fabulous!
You can check out his music video for “Dead of Night” at the link below.

Donald and the Giant Peach
I was walking up East 10th Street this afternoon when I saw a baker sculpting an
unusual looking cake. When I asked her what she was making, she said that it was
President Trump’s head stylized as a peach and that it was going to appear in a
television program. As I walked away, I wondered if the cake has a mint
flavor./New York, NY-2019.October.06
UPDATE/October.07-This cake was being made for Joy Behar’s birthday. It was
featured on The View this morning.
277 5th Avenue
Finnish artist Tony Sjöman works on an almost-finished mural, located on the fifth
floor of a new luxury residence at 277 5th Avenue.
Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to participate in a studio tour organized by the American Scandinavian Society. Sjöman showed us several of his murals that are in walking distance from his studio. We ended the tour by returning to his studio for a Q&A session and a few bubbly drinks. A lovely time was had by all!

New York, NY
Two mandarin oranges and a sprig of indigo plant rest on a
square of silk that has been hand dyed with indigo leaves.
The square is the end result of an indigo dying workshop
that I attended yesterday at Brooklyn’s Old Stone House.
