My dearest, I really haven't given any thought to what besides the obvious we might do next week, that is, I have no idea what's going on in the city as far as cultural offerings go. But just now as I've sat down with my icefilled glass in my room with a view (if I care to get up to look at it) and golden light (which I apprehend simply by turning my head to regard sunlit rattan chairs and patterns of light - the opposite of shadows - illuminating a wall), I've opened an email that includes a glowing review (linked to here) of a new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum, Rooms With a View: The Open Window in the 19th Century, that sounds very appealing, up our alley I think - or hope. How can I know what you might like? But I sense that you might enjoy this - or that we both would, seeing it together.
