BETHUNE ST.







> I slept over … without posting this last night …

It has been a long day yesterday… but a quiet one …. and I guess it was ok. I woke up at 6 am … and I had breakfast, big breakfast at 7 am … then went to the library to read. I need some work to get done…so I stayed there till lunch. Had kebab for lunch…

Then I went for a walk to the house of my friend Diane at Bethune St. … a swiss widower living at Bethune St. she and her husband are artist …nice apartment ..high ceilings … no furniture just the perfect spot to contemplate and draw …the building where mostly artists of this side of the city live young and old .. I did a sketch there ….

This times I like drawing a lot … it makes me feel good specially when I am at Diane’s place…she draws but most of the time writes poems … well I regret I cannot read her poems because it is all in Swiss .

Diane … I met here in Union Square park she was sitting on a bench with her note book writing some poems…

….well has some problems with remembering she met an accident 10 years ago …. And that impaired her coherence and memory of things. She has to ask me questions from time to time … like Drew Barrymore in 51st dates … but such a sweet lady….she needs to be reminded from time about things.

But I like talking to her she knows a lot about things …cool old lady. She drinks a “Shnoop shnoop” …a glass of wine at dinner and she likes eating swiss cheese a lot.

I enjoyed my whole day today reading … then went to visit a friend and we shared making art… talking about art.

Well nice day … a pleasant day …. My kindda day something I had been looking for …for quite some time.

I miss this kind of bloging …about myself…a bout what I do…
