Valentine's Day in the Big Apple

Elizabeth and I spent Valentine's Day weekend in Manhattan with our dear friend Jeff Haley, for the second straight year.  We had a great time, in spite of being a bit "under the weather."

We made trips to The Cloisters at Ft. Tryon Park, which is an extension of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  We also spent an afternoon at The Met, itself.

On Valentine's Day we treated ourselves to a showing of the Oscar Nominated Short Films at the IFC Centre.  Our two favorite films of the viewing were Auf Der Strecke  and Grisen.  Personally, I related to the tragic nature of Auf Der Strecke more than all the others, but Grisen had a wider dynamic range of emotions and had a happier ending, which will probably lead to getting more votes.  Of course, Manon on the Asphalt (the French Film) managed to squeeze in a 3 minute sex scene into its 15 minutes, so it'll likely win!

We rounded out our weekend with an afternoon worshiping at the Brooklyn Tabernacle.  In spite of their length (2+ hours), services at the BT are always an emotionally and spiritually stirring experience.

Below are a few photos from our trip:
