I usually get up an hour or more before E and Y do. When Y wakes up she assumes I’m in my office, comes in and climbs on my lap. While I’m typing she sometimes asks to edit her website together, or grabs a post-it and draws something. This one she attached to one of my screens as a gift yesterday morning.
Made a beautiful walk around Valkenburg today, ending with a visit to the castle ruins.
Underneath the outer wall on the hillside is the old Jewish cemetery of Valkenburg. In the image is the gravestone of Maximiliaan Bachrach, ca 1881- 08-10-1894. There is one other visible grave. There are other graves as it has been in use from 1792-1925, but the ground is ever shifting, due to the caves below the hill, so other graves likely have sunken into the ground over time.
We went to the theater tonight. E had received tickets as birthday present from cousin S, who sits on the board of the local chamber music festival September Me.
It was of course a socially distanced seating arrangement.
A beautiful opening concert by the Ragazze Quartet with compositions by Caroline Shaw, specifically written for and premiered at this festival tonight.
