The Improbability of Love

The Improbability of Love
Author: Hannah Rothschild
Year of Release: 2015

The Improbability of Love is like a well-made scone, not too sweet, not too dense but just perfect with a cup of coffee or two.  My only complaint is that it wraps up a bit too fast -- like an editor got overly concerned with page count--and the title is a mouthful. 

If The Bennet's Had Sex

Of course the Bennetts have sex. Well certainly the parents have done so, as they have five daughters as glorious proof. But in this modern-telling of Pride and Prejudice, the daughters make up for all that was "not happening" in the original.

Taking A Moment with Agnes Martin

Taking A Moment with Agnes Martin

Agnes Martin
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
New York, NY
Now through January 11, 2017

In this busy holiday season, a welcome respite comes via the Guggenheim museum.  The Agnes Martin exhibit is contemplative, meditative and serene journey.  Hung along the rotunda, from top to bottom, the work is displayed for the most part in chronological order.
