Happy may the forth… may the forth be with you.. actually.. buy now it must be cinco de mayo.. .. so happy that too.
Very cool day.. Diane and I left home about 7 am headed for NYC.. I spent the entire day.. and the entire druve working and tlakign on the phone thanks to my tooted droid phone and it’s internet tether app…Diane drove.. so I worked the entire day and was pretty productive.
We got to Max’s boat around 3.. but he wasn’t getting home until 5.. Iso we parked and I just worked in the car.
Max got home just before five… we unloaded the car then made dinner for the 9 folks we could round up from the boat. Diane had made thai curry. and Nan bread both of which were very good.. It was great meeting soem of the new oat crew members.. the most recent , Tom, just arrived from England only this morning..
I couldn’t help noticing that the spritz of hot sauce I made on my curry looked like Josef Stalin.. a good omen ?
Just before 7 we all crammed in the car and drove to downtown B’klyn to see Max’s senior show. It was in a high end opera hall turend movie theatre
The movies were tuly excellent.. there were 9 of them.. 2 of which were from Max… The first of max’s wsa a wonderful tribute to Sam.. I can’t really describe it here.. it was beutiful, powerful and sublte.. I can’t wait to see it again.. it was so moving..
His second piece was a tribute to living on the boat.. also beautiful and subtle..and compelling. t was really a wonderful experience being there to watch the show.. I was SO proud of max !!!!! i

Then we headed off with Max’s friends to celebrate at a local German bar..
