The Year in Pictures


January
Katy blasphemously imitates Lord Nelson (she's missing an arm) at the H.M.S. Victory Museum in Portsmouth.









February
"The Gates" by Christo and Jean-Claude, as seen from Cherry Hill in Central Park.





March
Ted, a game of Scrabble, and the bottle of Monty Python's Holy Grail Ale that went to the winner (me, I think, but we split the spoils) during my weekend trip to the Everglades.





April
My reflection in a tram window in Munich, Germany, on my way home from the Chinescher Turm beergarden.






May
My mother, Becky Klein, with her cake at her retirement party from twenty-odd years of teaching.









June
My shiny sparkly silver toenails, getting a break during a long Brooklyn walk.






July
Twenty minutes before the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.









August
Melissa Anelli and Ben on a ski lift up a mountain in Winter Park, Colorado. Ben hiked back down; Melissa and I saved our shins and rode.





September
Moi in Montauk, New York, after a nine-mile walk out to the point.










October
The yarn that went into my first-ever successful knitting project -- a pretty red brick-pattern scarf.






November
Melissa A., Daniel Radcliffe, and John Noe at the "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" premiere after-party.






My cousin Preston Tyler Klein contemplates his next move -- that is, picking up someone else's ball and dropping it somewhere that is not its original location -- during the Killer Klein Croquet game at Thanksgiving.





December
The Brooklyn Bridge, as seen from the Manhattan Bridge, as I walked to work with Rachel during the transit strike. The patch of green at the bottom is Brooklyn Bridge Park, where I held my 27th-birthday party in September.

  1. I like the way Preston sort of sticks his tongue out as he concentrates and decides on which ball to move. It reminds me of a certain cousin of his.

  2. Ok, so I'm really late to looking at your blog, but what a surprise that my son made your year in pictures list. (Proud Mommy here!)
