I can picture my mother here, though this is not her.  A veteran New Yorker, lover of subways and museums, often in her senior years she would  travel on the #6 subway on the Lexington line all the way from the Bronx to 86th Street.  She often talked to strangers and it would be just like her to meet another senior/art lover relaxing on a bench in the lower level of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, shopping bags resting at their feet like obedient dogs.

What a great place to hangout on a sunny afternoon in the summer, the roof garden of the Met.  Looking in every direction, I fantasize living in a swell apartment facing Central Park.  Who doesn’t?  Men/women/children are colored by reflection from Jeff Poons strangely wonderful sculptures on the roof. Life rivals art in the floors below.
