Books, baseball, flowers & art.
No Catskills this weekend. Tomorrow I'll go to Boston to catch the last day of an exhibit of paintings of Provincetown (Cape Cod). I learned about it from Urban Cottage Steve. If you missed the post, take a look here--he includes pictures of many of the paintings.
I plan to spend the rest of the weekend reading, weeding, and watching baseball. I'm a New York Mets fan (living in the land of the Boston Red Sox) and they are playing the big bad New York Yankees--a subway series, and I wish I was in New York taking the #7 subway to the ballpark.
There are many good, and a few great books about baseball. The best of them are human interest/baseball as a metaphor for life...and appeal to people who aren't baseball fans. This is one--about a season with a minor league baseball team. Here is one of my favorite Roger Kahn quotes: "You may glory in a team triumphant, but you fall in love with a team in defeat." Appropriate for a Mets fan.
Have a wonderful weekend!
