It’s been another exhausting, but fruitful, day in the big city! Since my big event isn’t till tomorrow, we decided to do another day of sightseeing starting with a visit to the Museum of Modern Art. The highlights included seeing Van Gogh’s, Starry Night and several Jackson Pollock pieces. The lowlight included some interesting art by Yoko Ono. Like:
The five-and-a-half-minute film consists of a series of close-ups of human buttocks as the subject walks on a treadmill.
Moon was not a fan.
My friend Jeanette has a super cool mom who just happens to live in NEW YORK, so she met us for dinner. And by “met” I mean “paid” which is my favorite kind of dinner! We ate at a yummy restaurant in Grand Central Station and I have photos but am way too tired to upload them, so stay tuned for later.
Afterwards, she hit the subway for home and we hit the streets to see a Broadway show called, On The Town. It was very well done and we had super close seats, (Row A) so that made it even more special. When it was over we waited outside and got some of the actors to sign our program. Again, pictures to come!
It was 10 pm and none of us felt like taking the subway so we walked. The wrong way. Twice. It wasn’t a huge deal, I mean I was HOPING I’d get to see the neighborhood named Hell’s Kitchen, and we were in luck! Thankfully all of the streets are numbered here and it didn’t take long before we figured out that 42 is lower than 43 and perhaps we should turn around.
By the time we leave on Saturday we’ll be practically locals!
Take a moment tomorrow and remember to pray for me. My talk is at 1 and I practiced what I was going to say today with Moon and JD. Moon commented that I said UM about a 1000 times but other than that, I was great.
