I found him in a cabinet. I didn’t realize he was living here and no memory of him moving in. Strange.

The day after surgery, Thursday, the dressing was removed. When I noticed that my eye was open – it has a mind of its own – I covered the good eye and immediately exclaimed as to how much better my vision is. Yay! Not perfect but the eyeball will take awhile to resume its proper shape (hey! Shape Up over there) and live up to the expectations of its improved condition. It is so much better. Happy camper am I.

Benedicte and I walked over to Burger Heaven and had breakfast for lunch. We zig-zag walked up to Madison Avenue, stopped into a gallery neither of us had ever been in and discovered, on the 2nd floor, some Chagalls, a Picasso drawing and a couple of Buffet paintings that were charming and not flowers. We ended up in The Met Breuer, checked out every floor, liked some things, got some ideas from other things. Benedicte was still taking care of me even though I seemed to be back to normal. I assured her that I was ok to take a bus to Penn Station by myself. I had orders to text as soon as I arrived home. Strange to say: it was actually a fun couple of days with almost no stress. As I was being wheeled into the operating room on Wednesday afternoon, the patient before me, already with a dressing covering one eye smiled a big grin at me and gave me a “thumbs up”. That’s how things went.

Walking wounded. Had some surgery yesterday, cataract extraction and a bonus that I can’t spell right now. Hard to spell with one eye open. It was in the city so Benedicte, the angel, and I stayed in a hotel for the night. Before the appointment I had time to do some sketching in MoMA. Pre-surgical sedative. After the surgery we called for an Uber and had the most delightful and interesting driver ever – he came here from Bangladesh eleven years ago and is currently in college. We checked into the hotel, stowed our belongings and walked to 8th and 34th for dinner (I had been fasting all day) at Tick Tock Diner. Then we took our hotel vouchers, for 2 drinks, to Pennsy and we sketched the drinking crowd. Pretty nice place, not too boisterous. Pssst Benedicte had my drink. Mandatory self-portrait followed.

The doorknob has a job. One less thing I have to do.

A couple of weeks ago there was a bevy of electricians working outside and inside. A whole day long thing. When they shut off all the power for the day, the inside guy hooked me up with some to keep me happy. He was working in the room with the recliner so I had a lamp, a floor fan and a line going to the refrigerator. I got a lot of paperwork done that day and discarded old stuff. I had a list and crossed off many of the items. I noticed that the guy(s) inside didn’t move around much as he(they) continuously worked so I took advantage.

For some reason I glanced out the window and spotted laundry. IPat jumped for joy, I could hardly control her. We had to sketch Right Now. That was ok, I had plans but they were very loose and only involved me. This fortuitous sketch opportunity foreshadowed the rest of the vaguely planned day – my last whole day in Porto. I sketched and walked and ate, sketched and walked some more. A sketcher from Israel ran into me and I ran into two more as I was leaving Ribeiro Square for the last time. I managed to get everywhere without a map for two consecutive days. Didn’t get lost at all. That was a major breakthrough – could be a miracle. It was a very serene ending to a very exciting and exhausting USK Symposium.

The USK Symposium ended last evening and I am on my own for two days. Reiberia was my second stop for the day and I ended up staying somewhere in this area until evening. Running into Sketchers and sketching until there was no more sketch left. I turned around, my other drawing of diners was complete, and I now faced the Douro River. There was a line of people sitting on the quay before me watching the boats speed and/or sail by. We were in the large shade provided by the only tree. It doesn’t matter where the sun is, there is always a big pool of shade. There were two benches available that allowed people to face in different directions. The breeze was constant and a bit chilly. Earlier there had been a busker attached to a life-sized dummy, taking up too much of the shade, dancing very entertaining tangos. It was nice when he left. Still crowded but quieter with a really cool view.
