I am taking a short break from my digital Snow Day photos because today my mother flies back to Holland. I am still here in the USA for another six weeks, but I will be leaving Houston soon, though I really cannot wait to be back in Holland.
This is what I miss:
Both of these photos were taken in Leiden, which is only a short bus ride away from my village.
Suzanne is one of my mother's friends. She is very eccentric, and very wonderful.
Suzanne likes to have art in her house from those around her. For instance, at the moment, she has multiple photos done by my mother, and a coloured pencil drawing of converse by me.
Soon she will also have these three photos hanging in her office:
The first photo was taken the day before Easter at an indoor market on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, the second was taken late at night at Rockefeller Center this past winter, and the third in Wassenaar, (Holland,) on my walk to the shopping street this spring.
Especially with all the art from the Festival all around.
Governors Island used to be a kind of Military base and the architecture reflects that. There are all these big stately buildings that look almost southern, surrounded by huge trees and streets. And directly over the trees is the New York City skyline. It's really a beautiful place.
The New Island Festival was an Arts festival that was held in New York on Governor's Island as a part of the events taking place in The Netherlands and New York City to celebrate the 400th year since Henry Hudson landed on Manhattan. One of the attractions was a performance by Boom Chicago, an Amsterdam based, American run theatre group that works similarly to Second City. I interned for Boom Chicago, so I headed out to see them, and had a wonderful time with my friend Emily exploring the festival.
