Images from MAD and our southern walk.

Yesterday we caught up with our friend Mary-Jane. Of course we spent much time talking and exchanging news and notes; but we also got time to do a quick tour of the Museum of Art and Design. One major feature was 3D art created using computers and 3D printers and cutting machines. Some images below.

Today we spent time walking around the very south if the city. One of our destinations was to see Andy Goldsworthy's Garden of Stones at the Museum of Jewish Heritage - a memorial garden in memory of those who perished in the holocaust and those who survived. A very meaningful, reflective and yet peaceful space.

We also checked out various landmark buildings including churches and grave yards - part do the very early settlement. A few fragments are in the photos below.

We are home with weary feet but uplifted spirits which were furthered calmed by a a late afternoon sunset through the trees.


  1. The magic of NYC!
    Love seeing how much you have "touched". Enjoy!!!

  2. I would love to have been there to chat when you met up with Mary-Jane. That first image is amazing!

  3. You've had such wonderful and inspiring adventures. Glad you are back safe and sound. Have a very Happy Christmas and peace, joy(and perhaps a teeny little bit of creativity) for the Festive Season.

  4. Dear Barry, thank you for a wonderful year of sharing your creativity, and for all the inspiration.
