Filming for Ouroboros started today.
It had a totally fresh feeling to it.
It's cold, but I'll watch my physical condition and hang in there.
The trip I went on by myself the other day was to NY.
There was the thrill and excitement of how far I dared to venture on my own, but it was a city where even I who can't read maps could travel without getting lost.
I crossed the Brooklyn Bridge on foot.
I could see the Statue of Liberty (lit. "Liberty Goddess")
and the Manhattan Bridge too.
The university buildings were of a style where even students come by car, so it was big.
Chelsey Market was a great spot where I freely purchased merchandise and works of young artists among others, and where I ate and bought from a delicious bakery, and oysters, fish, lobster, etcetera.
The nearby High Line was being expanded, so it ended as if it faded out, but eating salad at Chop't and have a rest on a terrace I had a lovely stroll.
Unlike the NY image of Central Park and Times Square, they're big enough to get lost in.
The autumn colours were beautiful, and there were lots of squirrels too.
I'll go see the statue of Alice next time.
Metropolitan Museum of Art is a song I really like from Minna no Uta, so with the first and second song lyrics looping through my head I went through the entrance and there happened to be Roman sculptures of marble and such on the left.
The first lyrics in the song.
If you continued to the right there were Egyptian pharaohs.
Impacted more than anyone else, I got moved to the point of goosebumps, "There's the second song lyric!" Taking photos felt like sacrilege, so I gazed intently without taking photos, and talking in my mind I greeted them, "we meet again".
It's the first time in my life I'm affected by works of art in this way.
There's a drawing of an imprisoned girl in the song lyrics too.
Be sure to look for it when you visit, okay?!
Guggenheim Museum had an exhibition to the theme of ZERO, in which you could enjoy ideas while experiencing ART.
MOMA exhibited in it's special exhibition space the ART of an old guy who made skilled cut-outs of just a few lines. (Henri Matisse - The Cut-Outs)
It was exhausting, but a fresh experience.
Naturally I commuted to Broadway every night too.
There were also days in which I watched two shows.
A Gentleman's Guide
It's Only A Play
My impressions are becoming long, so I'll write about it again when I have the time.
Also, I'll put up photos.
This is it for now!
I'll do my best with filming tomorrow!
