A Painting To View February 19, 2018

6a00d83452615669e200e54f4c6e148834-115si   Virginia Wolff Knitting, a portrait done by her sister Vanessa Bell, 1912.  This painting is in The National Portrait Gallery in London.  I was recently in London visiting family and friends.  Number 1 on my list of things I wanted to do – if I was on my own – was to visit the National Portrait Gallery.  Well the visit with family and friends was completely taken up with wonderful activities which did not include the NPG.  Save that for next time.  There is so much to do in London!!!

 

Flying Around March 19, 2016

A son in London training on Hempstead Heath to run the London Marathon on April 24.  A daughter-in-law at a conference in Delhi and flying back to London as I write.  I sit at my computer in Seattle and follow other people’s travels.  Hoping to travel myself before too long. London calling.   The recovery from the hip replacement surgery is slow.  Other muscles and joints are protesting.  My Middlebury College Gamaliel Painter’s Cane – a gift from the college at our 50th reunion – is coming in handy.
