Staying in this huge house with friends and I’m cooking something weird. I am showing it to Jandro and we’re joking about it in some way. Zoe is there but only for 5 years old and she’s making some kind of dollhouse or cityscape. It’s like a complicated cardboard structure. I can’t remember whether it’s 2D or 3D. Anyway it’s elaborate and impressive and I help her a little.
And then there’s a scene at 40 Colonial Ave. where I’m looking at the yard or garden up behind our house, at the neighbors, the Kleins. Some things are growing really nicely there but I can’t remember what exactly.then I’m walking around that neighborhood, up on the hill in Dobbs Ferry, with Randy, I keep seeing Adam Wolkoff and his wife from a distance and I’m going to say hi. But I never quite get close enough.
I’m at the Statue of Liberty. I’m looking at it from a distance at first and I think about how the Statue of Liberty is off on this tiny tiny island, and beyond it all the buildings and New York, Manhattan, are piled up right next to it, crowding it.
There’s a very precarious sort of bridge that connects the two, Liberty Island and Manhattan. And I’m trying to get from Liberty Island to Manhattan. so I’m going to walk on this bridge which is really nothing more than a 10 in wide plank across the body of water separating the island from Manhattan. I don’t know if I can do it. But I put my phone in one pocket and zip it up and I guess my date book in the other pocket and zip it up. So they won’t get wet. And I step onto the plank.
So it’s very tippy and I’m getting really wet. I’m afraid I’m going to fall in. But I don’t fall in, even though I sink to the knees. Somehow I manage to wadrle on this plank, telling myself I’m almost there, I’m almost there. I get to the other side, I’m kind of a mess, but I walk into like the back door of a house on the other side. I’m afraid I’m going to frighten whoever lives there, but it turns out to be a very friendly woman who is compassionate and sympathetic to my situation. She helps me out.a
