Friday night: dinner in the West Village with Andy’s friends from the Dessoff Choirs and a twilight Highline stroll.

Saturday: a rare venture to Long Island City, so near and yet so far from Manhattan, full of architectural curiosities, striking juxtapositions, and street art. Andy gave his first public reading ever as part of the Queens Literary Festival in Gantry Plaza State Park, at the invitation of Bill Shunn, who coordinates a regular reading series called Line Break.

Sunday: I spent most of the day working as one of 20 volunteer massage therapists for the Jewish Community Center’s annual Spa Day for Wellness for women living with breast or ovarian cancer. In the afternoon Andy went for a run in Central Park. In the evening we met Ben and Tom for dinner at Porsena in the East Village and then saw the wonderful singer-songwriter Matt Alber‘s show at Joe’s Pub.
