Notes: Blue nights

Last night, we went to Vanessa Redgrave’s performance of Blue Nights by Joan Didion…  

appropriately held at The Cathedral Church of Saint-John the Divine. Selections of the book were read (minus that beautiful preface) and echoed through the enormous church.

On our way home, my favorite subway performer was singing on the platform while we waited for the downtown 1 train to arrive. We stopped by Diner and sat at the bar until it got late. It was a perfect rainy Monday night in the city.

P.S. The Joan Didion Documentary Kickstarter

P.P.S.  More aptly named Didion items at over at LaGarconne, I picked up this perfect little t-shirt during my first visit to their beautiful new brick and mortar store in Tribeca.
