Grand children left yesterday after a visit to the Museum of Natural History. How lucky we are to have such a magnificent place for people to learn about the natural world and other indigenous cultures. We spent much time in the section about climate change. My daughter is an informed and avid environmentalist whose column on the successful Mother Nature Network (Ask Vanessa) shows the depth of her knowledge. She has raised her children to be very conscious about being environmentally conscious in every way including how they eat. It was an impressive exhibit.
Just heard the former President of Brazil, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, will be coming to the play soon.
My awareness of over population was on high alert while in the Museum. We were in line outside in the rain waiting to get in for 45 minutes and, once in, the crowds were so dense!! On the one hand, I was glad so many are interested in what the museum has to offer. One the other hand, I kept remembering back in the fifties when one could walk around easily and see everything without being jostled and crammed.
I’m fighting a cold today. Must have been the rain. Downing much vitamin C fizzy stuff, etc. Still, though, I am about to go to Pilates class. I’ve missed too many and am beginning to feel slothful.
Much to say but I’m off to Pilates. No one coming tonight that I know so it’ll be right home to bed after the early (7pm) show.
See you next time.
