Oh, how I wish I was in New York

It's bad enough we are missing the fun at Rob's family reunion, but now I learn we're going to miss an incredible exhibition of Paul Fusco photographs, "R.F.K. Funeral Train—Rediscovered." What a piece of Americana. I'm eating my heart out. Hey, if you're in the neighborhood, won't you go and enjoy it for me?

And if you're curious about why it's gotten under my skin, just take a look at this three-minute slide show produced by The New York Times. It's narrated by the photographer. This to me is beauty. The real deal.

I wish we were all in New York. But in the meantime I can't wait to see this right here in our pretty great state of Utah.

That is beautiful, Geo.

That was just a couple of weeks before I was born...
