I could make up some romantic story about the
balloons, but they all say "Team Kenneth Cole,"
so my best guess is that this spot near the
Conservatory Gardens in Central Park was the starting
point for a run for charity. Lots of companies
in NYC do that (mine included).

Another image from Manus x Machina, on
display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art until
mid-August. These gorgeous gowns are
from Christian Dior, c. early 1950s
(and both great examples of the postwar
exuberance in fashion).

"He who plants a tree is a servant of God.
He provides a kindness for many generations, and
faces that he has not seen shall bless him.
—Henry Van Dyke

When I came out of the Metropolitan Museum
last Friday, the moon—big and hazy—
was rising over the city.

When you ride a boat along the Canal St. Martin,
in Paris, you do it for the experience—not to
get anywhere fast. Those locks take their sweet
time filling up to the proper level . . .
but eventually the gates open
and the barrier is breached.

Three turn-of-the-century Tiffany lamps
on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
a chandelier with "blossom globes,"
a standing lamp with a peony shade, and a
table lamp with a lotus shade. I hope that whoever
got to live with these lamps at the time
had the good grace to fully appreciate them!
(Louis Comfort Tiffany made the little
oak and bronze table too.)

That's the title of this art installation currently
on the roof of the Met. The artist,
Cornelia Parker, got her inspiration partly
from the house in the movie Psycho—and like
that movie-set one, this is also unfinished on two sides.
