This week

Lots of things happened.

Still taking Cipro (until Tuesday). Slightly better each day, but still a problem.

I am going to move again. I didn't really plan to do this, but I've been unhappy with this apartment for some time now. After my fight with the landlord I think it's best if I get out. So I've been spending a lot of time looking, online and otherwise. There are lots of apartments for rent but not many I want or can afford.

Because of this, and because I should do it anyway, I'm trying to get rid of stuff. Last week I shredded or threw out tax returns from 1988 through 2002. I didn't even know I had them. They came with my divorce.

Last weekend I went to a benefit concert for Japan, actually the second one I've been to. This was at Pitt and included some Japanese cultural things as well as good music. This photo is from the tea ceremony.

I found it strange and interesting to have the camera man right in there with the participants while a ghostly image of the action was projected onto the screen behind. It reminded me of the Bunraku performance I saw in Osaka where the puppet masters stand directly next to the life-size puppets. All the camera man needed was a black hood around his head.

More beautiful trees from the 'burgh. These are in a somewhat run down park that was once the site of George Westinghouse's mansion.

    So sorry that you are not getting better faster…but glad there’s some improvement. Sorry too that you feel you have to move. Your landlord is a fool, and the new one will be lucky to have you. Any good senior housing there. We have some wonderful spots all priced by income.

    Relieved to hear you’re getting better. The trees are stunning and the walkway–all level like that–looks like a wonderful place to walk. Here in my neighborhood I have to either climb a hill or go down one–hence I do most of my walking these days on a walker in the gym or round and round the ice skating. Good luck with that move and getting rid of any accumulated junk that holds you back! I hope you find something you’ll love.
