MOMA and september 11 memorial

How grand that here in New York there are ongoing so many things: the remodeling of MOMA, so that all sorts of things get shuffled around, and you notice them more.Or differently. Everything in a different place turns out to look different - I love reseeing objects like Joseph Kosuth's DEFINITION, the definition of definition, about the most meta-thing you could imagine, hanging blackly on the wall so you can see it defined. It is funny, real, and thought-already-thought-provoking.

And the week-long Bach free concerts at Trinity Church  -- that church almost unscathed in the events.. Every day, cantatas, every evening, more. And Poets House, down by Battery Park City, will sponsor readings by poets in the St. Paul Chapel of Trinity, and, on the day of September 11, an assembly of a thousand or more, holding hands in a circle, to remember.
