That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough
I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try
But that was just a dream
Try, cry, why try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream, dream

“He who sees a need and waits to be asked for help is as unkind as if he had refused it.”
On Sunday, Katherine and I went up to
The Cloisters. It is a beautiful Medieval Museum – an annex of the Met.
It is located in
Fort Tryon Park north of The George Washington Bridge. It has great views of the Hudson as well.
It is filled with European religious art, primarily 12th to 15th century.
Katherine really enjoyed the Buddha look of this Madonna and Child.
We started with Dante. How can we not end with souls being tormented in Hell?
I was on East 15th Street yesterday and was intrigued by two very different buildings dedicated to religion. The first is
St Mary‘s Byzantine Catholic Church with their International Style II architecture (The Church’s word not mine) interestingly expressed through their steeple…
The other is the
Society of Friends (Quaker) Meeting House built in 1860. It is attached to Friends Seminary, the oldest continuous coeducational school in the City.
Second verse, very different from the first…
Today is the 2nd Anniversary of The Quotidian Hudson…I thought it only appropriate…
