  1. I don’t think you miss much, and thanks to your photos, I never have to suffer from FOMO, either.

    Today, I am in Seattle again, where my baby grandson was born last night.

    I’m so happy you’re having a fabulous time in the Big Apple, Ann. I love the pictures.

  3. Fantastic, outstanding, magical objects!

  4. Debbie T

    Some of those pieces of art are a little … creepy?

  5. found our museums open!

  6. If I may, looking at some of your pictures and thinking of your ideas for “FOMO” I felt like changing a few words around to say, “Fantastic Odysseys, Many Outstanding”, including, but not limited to, those amazing art works. I looked through them thinking how I know several of those artists–particularly Chagall and Kahlo–but there are so many more I’d like to know.

  7. Familiar ordeal meddling others

  8. Flipping Outstanding Manhattan Observations, Ann!

  9. I have always kind of liked the FOMO as Fear of Missing Out. I don’t think I relate to it, too much anyway. But I have friends I think define themselves by the implication!

    A little personal bio: I saw Company in Los Angeles in maybe 1971? I’m not sure, but I married in 1972 and it was before that. It was the absolute first touring Broadway show for me, introduced by the parents of a good friend. They had seats at the front of the theater and I saw it with members of the original cast, and I absolutely fell in love. It was me introduction to live musical theater, and I would love to see it again! I’m grinning just thinking of it! 🙂

    • I have no fear of missing out on your experiences, Debra, because of the way you share them. My first experience of Company was in the 70’s, when I appeared in a local production of it as the 1st Soprano in The Vocal Minority, the four female singers that sang so much of that wonderful music! I completely fell in love with the score and have seen every Sondheim musical I could ever since. Sondheim’s music makes my life better and so do you!
