We were in Brooklyn, NY, this weekend, visiting son Tom. He and his two roommates have done a great job with the challenging living space they have available to them. New York sucks, in my opinion. But when I look at it through the eyes of these young musicians, I see its magic.
Also magical is a movie we took in over the weekend — Bright Star, Jane Campion's superb new film starring Abby Cornish, with Ben Whishaw as John Keats. A lovely, literate film. Go see it.
