Fun In New York City

On Saturday last we visited the beautiful new Whitney Museum of American Art, located at one end of the "High Line" in the "meat-packing" district of lower Manhattan. Dan posed outside of the building and I got a couple of shots of the high line. The painting is a lovely Hopper in the Whitney's collection. I particularly like it because of the train-related theme.

One Year After Open Heart Surgery

"A heart will never be practical until it can be made unbreakable." - L. Frank Baum

One year ago today, February 16, 2015, I embarked upon the most profound adventure of my life, as I put myself in the hands of a young heart surgeon at Temple University. He had told me that my heart condition would kill me if not treated. I trusted him to use his great talent and training to help me and he did not let me down. A year later I feel fully recovered and I'm enjoying my new lease on life.

It was a difficult recovery at times. Only the love and support of a wonderful spouse, many good friends, and our beautiful pets got me through it. To them I offer my undying gratitude.

To those facing open heart surgery in the future, know that all will be well with the support of loved ones and the passage of time.
