Rain of Light

My title, not the artist’s. The artist left it untitled so I thought, what if I call it ”Rain of Light”, isn’t it more fitting? Presumptuous may be, but it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw it illuminating the stairwell, making it an integral part of the museum rather than a solely utilitarian feature. I instantly thanked myself for choosing to take the stairs instead of the lift.

A Toast to the Total Wheaties Champion…! He will always be my Fiber One…!
Here he is taking an inward pike dive into the warm pool of spicy Cinammon Chex! He’s no Vanilla boy, our Greg.

Oats! I’m being a bad girl now… Oh, go on then, Crunch-a-tize me Cap’n!wp20161230_172630 wp20161230_172636 wp20161230_173619

There can be no X-mas W-out Doctor Who

And the fact that the Doctor landed in New York and joined forces with a brand new superhero in his effort to save Manhattan, made the story all the more poignant.

Also, ”The Return of Doctor Mysterio” marked the return of the universe’s most resilient Doctor on the screens after a full year’s absence, and got us Capaldi-deprived Whovians even more excited about his – eagerly awaited – next adventure.wp20161229_190124 wp20161229_190125

Viewed on a big screen in AMC Empire 25. Edited to include a link to the current wpc.

On the bright side

Walking the High Line can be a real challenge with endless rows of tourists obstructing annoyed New Yorkers obstructing desperate joggers realising only too late that their choice of running track couldn’t have been worse (actually it could but I’ll come back on that later).

But step aside, look left or right away from this nuisance and a broader – brighter – perspective will lay ahead.
