More Central Park
After leaving Allegro Pianos, we decided to walk a couple of blocks toward Central Park. It was another perfect summer afternoon warm, in the 80s, just a great day stroll around the park. Our kids got to be kids. They found a playground with a swing. We all watched Matilda last night, and one of the scenes from Matilda shows the school kids riding a swing. Here’s the link When I Grow Up (Matilda video). So in an attempt to swing like the school kids in the show, this is what happened in Central Park!
Thank you, Genie (Robin Williams)

Although I wrote this blog in June, I had to go back and add this section last night….my tribute to Robin Williams, who as we all know,
died on Aug 11. It was yesterday late in the afternoon when the news broke out. I was at the Cheesecake Factory, and from where I was sitting, there were 2 flat screen TVs, one of which flashed multiple pictures of Robin Williams. I couldn’t read what was written, so I had to get up and was shocked at what I read. Not Robin Williams, I said.
In the movie, Aladdin, Robin Williams made us believe the magic that was hidden in that lamp. There was magic in Robin Williams. Many of us have been enchanted by his humor. He was able to make us laugh in many of his movies and TV shows. He was pure genius in Aladdin. That movie would not have been that great of a hit without Robin Williams. In Mrs. Doubtfire, he made us laugh hysterically, yet there were poignant moments in that movie that showed you the father-side of his character. I can’t say that I’ve seen every movie he made, but I certainly have enjoyed the ones I’ve seen. Now, I’m curious which of his movies are on Netflix. Thank you, Robin. You set the comedic bar. May you rest in peace, Genie, you are now free.
