…I admit to feeling a little sad. But mostly, my memories of the Big Apple will be of the lovely people I met.
Here’s one of them. No, he doesn’t really have a Cissus vine growing out of his head!
Lunch in Greenwich Village, with UB
“Three Petes” A fine name for these fine players. Yes, all called Peter!
New Yorkers, if you’d like to listen to some good music, head over to http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/greenwich-village-bistro/ on Wednesdays, at lunchtime.
Some of you might recall that I have a print of Victoria’s iconic water towers. Well, now I have one of the beautiful Chrysler Building! I had a mat cut the other day, thinking I had enough foamcore to back it. Wrong! But I’ll get a new piece today and will post a photo once it’s on the wall.
update: here it is! Not yet on the wall, but isn’t it beautiful?
It has a Rackham-ish look, don’t you think?But if you’d like to see more (buy some?) do check out Victoria’s blog and Etsy shop.(And, no, she didn’t ask me for a plug.)
Here’s a shot of the

And the First of the Melanies, the stalwort who stayed in contact with The Man, via email, when no one seemed to know where in the snowstorm I was, who hung around JFK airport til damn’ near daylight, waiting for me, the Melanie whom I first came to know in a sketchbook exchange, the Melanie who is not keen to have her photo taken…
But she does have a highly photogenic cat!
I still have quite a few photos to process, but it might take a while. Deadlines have a nasty habit of sneaking up on a person!
