Took the subway with a friend from Cal to Prospect Park in Brooklyn. The park was saturated with thousands of audiences carrying picnic baskets and towels. They performed Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from Eugene Onegin. Prokofiev’s piano music beautifully dark. I enjoy playing it.
There was a spectatcular fireworks show afterwards. The sparks contrasted with the dark blue sky.
My friend and I purposely got lost in the park as we headed back to Manhanttan. We wandered through the woods until we realized that it was almost midnight and we would rather not be homicide victims.
