I’ve rediscovered the brilliance of COLUMBO on Netflix…the guest star line-ups are amazing (Eddie Albert, Suzanne Pleshette, Blythe Danner, Roddy McDowall, Leslie Nielsen, and so many more…) and Peter Falk is so charmingly entertaining as the raincoat-wearing detective.
Remembering September 11th with photos of the blue tower lights from my roof in Brooklyn.

In keeping with my Broadway series for this year, I saw ALADDIN with the Tony Award-winning James Monroe Iglehart in the role of the Genie. The show was amazing, with lots of fun song and dance numbers, incredible energy, and plenty of laughs. I loved it!
I had an amazing time in the jungles of Costa Rica. The wildlife was so exotic, from giant bugs and monkeys to lizards and sloths. I even tried zip lining! What an adventure!
BOYHOOD totally took me by surprise…I was so intrigued by the concept of filming a set of actors over 12 years, but even as the rambling story unfolded, I had no idea that I’d become so emotionally involved in the “growing up” of the title boy. Brilliant Linklater film!
This unusual and very original movie was an unexpected summer treat! The entire cast gave solid performances, especially Chris Evans. And the set design of each train car was so fun and surprising! The aquarium/sushi car might just be my favorite.
Live from New York City…HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!
For my Summer Reading List, I want to do a mix of some classics and some new works:
The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Love Life by Rob Lowe
The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger
Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch
I had a wonderful cruise to Bermuda on the Norwegian Breakaway!
I toured the Royal Naval Yard and Hamilton, soaked up the sun, read a few books and drank a strawberry daiquiri every day…the perfect recipe for relaxation.
While out in Pennsylvania for a family wedding, my parents and I were able to tour Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Fallingwater. The design is so unique and modern, especially for the 1930’s. And I loved all the terraces!
