New York Diaries: June 28th

Thursday June 28th — A┬áCentral Park Day

It was not an early start day. And that was fine. My eggs and toast and grapefruit and coffee were perfect. We still can’t seem to get out of the house before 1pm. Fine. We are on vacation. Let’s behave like we are.

I can honestly say I have had a hot dog in Central Park after an absorbing walk through the Museum of Natural History.

The Hall of Bio-diversity installation is as memorable as it gets. A wall of a graphical and 3-d timeline of then to now. A ribbon of butterflies of the world coloring my dreams. A great whale suspended from the a room that must be larger than it in life to hold it. The Grouchy Lady and all the times I read the story playback in my head as I read how the Ladybug first confronted the whale’s tail at 6pm only to be sent like a bullet in the wind back to the beginning of the story WITH an attitude adjustment.

A Kindergarten teacher old enough to be my grandmother, overheard me recall this moment to Bronte and said sweetly, “I think of that too when I see the whale.”

We got lost trying to get out…Not kidding.

Yes, Dinosaurs are impressive too.
