We had an exciting talk and email with Wendy and Sarah from Martha’s Vineyard this morning. It made us feel very happy and positive. Our friend Nuno in Lisbon is going to edit the footage of our show in Martha’s Vineyard. We have to mail the hard drive that contains the footage to him. The park was closed today because the Pope was there. Thankfully we were told about it by the Boyds on Wednesday so we could make other plans. We went out for sushi at Chelsea Market. What an amazing place! They have every kind of food you could imagine. Thoth was very happy. So was I. We even bumped into a celebrity chef who was picking out fish for his clients. “I’m booked forever.” he said. I hope we can say that someday. I believe we will. It was an hour wait to sit down for sushi, but it was delicious. I ordered a salmon sandwich to have later and a pretty lady came over to us. Her name was Victoria McGrath and she was a makeup artist. “I don’t meet people that are like me often.” I said. “I was just talking about that before I saw you. I was thinking. ‘Where are my people?”I asked a man outside the market where a post office was. Thoth asked him which island he was from. “Jamaica.” he said in his thick accent. “Barbados.” Thoth said indicating himself and laughing. “You from Barbados too?” he asked me. “No, no. I’m English and Irish.” I said. “I thought you were a little girl.” he said. “It’s the pig tales I said laughing. We walked to the post office and mailed the hard drive, then we took the train home. What a lovely day.
