Sunday in Brooklyn

Getting back on track:

1. The world outside Coney Island Hospital looked bright and beautiful and breathing free air felt wonderful.

2. Back on our plan, Jim and I visited the
Kings County Hospital neighborhood, remembering his days as an intern. Halfway through Jim's internship we moved to an apartment in
this house so we were closer to the hospital. We walked the city blocks noticing the changes as we sorted the memories pouring out of both of us.






3. Stepping out of the past briefly we enjoyed a few hours at the fine
Brooklyn Museum. We decided to focus on two exhibits: first, Judy Chicago's monumental, The Dinner Party, magnificient in this setting built especially for it. And, second, the museum's Eqyptian collection, one of the finest in the US. This was the first time Jim had seen The Dinner Party
- and a bit nostalgic for me - I had attended the opening in San Francisco in 1978.

We returned to Argyle Road to find a neighborhood spot for supper and an early evening back in our room at the Loralei - grateful, very grateful, for being there.

My head is filled with stories from Brooklyn and I know they will be popping out in the days ahead.
