I had cleared my calendar for last Friday, planning to spend the day working. However, my home page is The Boston Globe and I saw a glowing review of “Class Distinctions: Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer,” a new exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts. As members, we could see it before it opened to the public. And since the Museum is walking distance from Boston’s Symphony Hall, where we could get last-minute tickets for a 1:30 concert for $9.00, I proposed a day of culture to Peter.
Work or play? That was easy. By 11:00 we were at the Museum, having gotten our rush tickets when the Symphony Hall box office opened. We saw a great exhibition, had lunch in the museum and walked to Symphony. Yeah, the $9.00 seats weren’t terrific, but it didn’t matter.
Work or play? Retirement has its pluses.
