Figured out how to download from the camera!
But it doesn't always work.  In fact, after a day of successful downloads, it fails, and I had to force quit to continue.  This new rig is also indicating I need a blue tooth device in order to have sound.  If it isn't one thing, it's another.
Ch-ch-ch-changes in the virtual world can be daunting.

Wednesday  the 4th
Hunter College Assembly Hall
69th and Park Avenue
Krishna Das chanting for 'Dada J. P. Vaswani'
living master ninety five years old

Friday the 6th
Dearest of my dear friends
N. A.

 On her way from one State to another, she arrived for breakfast on twenty first Street at seven.  Then we walked to Union Square where an obliging film student snapped us in the Gandhi Garden saying our goodbyes.
Amy Ernst treated to an early supper at 'Friend of A Farmer' on Irving Place after we met in the afternoon to pick up the new computer she had 'Tekserve' wipe clean to transfer my data from the old rig.  It's run by the son of a farmer, and is pricey , but mighty tasty. 
Then to my place to set up
An hour and a half of testing and trying, and we were both exhausted.

Saturday the 7th
Cathedral of St. John the Divine
112th Street on Amsterdam Avenue 
"Interfaith Kirtan for World Peace"
 honoring the hundredth birth anniversary of 
H.H. Swami Satchidananda
Three and a half hours of chanters and musicians from many faith traditions including Krishna Das, C.C. White,
Kirtan Rabbi Andrew Hahn, and Guru Ganesha Singh.
Charming child
Ecstatic dancer
Barefoot poet

Singing Along
Two minutes and not great video,
just to remember the feeling

on a break to catch the sunset
See the young white peacock?
There are also two elderly regular peacocks on the property.  They each have their own 'houses', are fed twice daily, wander freely, and are never confined.  It's an amazing place, with many gardens and I'll return to photograph another day.
Sunday the 8th
Dharma Mittra Yoga Center
61 West 23 Street
"Living and Dreaming Lucidly"
Tibetan Buddhist Practices with Michael Katz,
and Chanting with Krishna Das
A benefit for Chogyal Namkhai Norbu

Tuesday the 10th
State University of New York 
College of Optometry Eye Center
44 West 42nd Street
 Last check up for the right eye lens replacement was several hours with lots or wait time to stare, temporarily semi-blinded, at "Arthur"
All is well
New close up glasses prescription won't be fulfilled until the left eye lens is replaced, which is dependent on raising another $500 up front co-pay funds.  Hoping to manage that before Summer turns to Fall.
I enjoyed the flowers in planters across 42nd Street as I wended my way back home to nap till the dilation effect wore off.

"There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That
magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first; when you learn to live
for others, they will live for you."
