One Last Song for Christmas

Though Hurricane Sandy recovery slowed me down I got to have lots of Christmas experiences this year...the aroma of pines on Broadway, the Tree at Rockefeller Center, Macy's, a day of fun and celebration with my friends in Brooklyn and holiday festivities with my colleagues. I also visited the shopping mall in Queens, the Queens Center and heard the Columbia University a cappella group, "Notes and Keys." They were there to celebrate the Blu-ray/DVD release of the fun movie, "Pitch Perfect," a sweet and funny movie about a college singing group. I had the added fun of meeting Teacherfish after the performance for coffee and apple strudel.

The Christmas Tree at the Queens Center

The very talented "Notes and Keys"

An enthusiastic audience enjoyed the show

I had a very enjoyable Sunday. I saw "Lincoln," and I am one of those who are giving it a rave review. Even though I knew the story I was still enthralled. It featured some of my favorite actors, especially David Strathairn, who I just saw in the Broadway version of "The Heiress." I ended my gadding about town by getting a vaccination against shingles. I have been putting this off for months, and finally can cross this off my list of things to do, which feels very good. 

I'm now settling in for a quiet evening of reading and television, all cozy while I listen to the wind outside. Once again I send you...

Wishes for a snug and cozy evening!
