Unidentified, unique, unexpected . . . flying, floating, found . . . objects, opportunities, and more. Sci-fi and UFOs have meant a lot to me. Uniformed floating officers…

… or unidentified floating object here that moved quickly up the East River last summer and known only (to me) as Peggy. What’s the home port? Is Peggy a converted sardiner?

Or yesterday I went to the National Museum of the American Indian in Lower Manhattan and saw ItuKiagatta, fantastic Inuit sculpture in stone, bone, and ivory show on only until Feb 3. My photos can’t capture the beauty, so just go. But the unexpected found objects were the Reginald Marsh murals, huge examples of WPA harbor-inspired art on the underside of the rotunda dome. Curved is hard to shoot.

Check it out: Marsh even got the Statue to swivel 45 degrees to the north to follow this inbound liner. More Marsh later. More UFOs too.
