MAGNES Keats Opening

Life is funny. The Museum had a really successful opening last Saturday evening with some 100 people or more at the downtown building.

My family was there, excepting that my wife K was back in New York, for Sacha J.'s wedding. On Saturday evening she was out on Long Island with our dear friends A & A who are expecting. Yay.

My dad came out for the opening. And so he got to hear the daughter of his dear friend Marty Rabkin speak on behalf of the University of California.

Dad went to Fieldston with Marty -- funny that my father should find Marty's daughter as part of a program developed in part by his son.

Marty also dances with my dad's nephew (my cousin)...but that's a whole different story.
