thanks, small local artists' art exhibit (my husband is part of the art group), so only took about half hour to look at the art, take some photos, but then spent another 3 hours combing the bookstore. rarely do i have the luxury to spend all the time i want in a bookstore, so not a lot of movement, but better to be on my feet and up and down vs just my usual sitting at work.

got another sudoku book, mensa this time, hope its challenging enough, most people do sudoku for the mental stimulation, i do it because it find it relaxing, yes, i am not typical in a lot of ways!

got a cookbook of sicilian cooking, loving the photos of the region, of the food, and the recipes look good too. my stepfather is sicilian so very fortunate to have learned how to cook good authentic italian food.

saw a cheap copy of "siddhartha" in paperback, so bought that for one of my research students who i had just recommended it to the other day.

and bought a book by a doctor called "every patient tells a story":
http://www.amazon.com/Every-Patient-Tell...8414&sr=1-6
it looks like a very good read, will report back when i'm done.

so, not much "exercise" but good to be up for a change, and to buy books, even better.

as for that art exhibit at moma, looks interesting. here we have the george eastman house and international museum of photography and film:

i've seen a few interesting exhibits there, though should probably go more often.
