    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

Bermuda cruise

While we were in Bermuda we were lucky enough to see the visit of the Tall Ships to Hamilton. The celebrations started the day after we left but we did see some of them arrive–disappointingly under the power of their inboard motors, not under sail. I will put up some pictures of them in a separate post.

  1. If I wrote all the comments that are in my head, I would need a website all to myself. Suffice it to say, I do check your blog quite often, and continue to be in awe of your talents, your interests, and zest for living. Now, I think you might have a chance for a new career….report-photographer…on the Manhattan beat. Great work.
    I intend to send a personal email as soon as I have a chance to sit down. In the meantime, I have shared your POW experiences with my Florida friends at Lake Port Square..
    YOU are well-known now to everyone down there….and the interest in your article was overwhelming. I sent it to one of my friends…and she has shared it, and continues to do so.
    Now..Hope you have time away from blogging to check your emails! Mellicent

    • Mellicent. Thank you. I have just taken advantage of the economic climate to buy a new camera with a 300 mm lens. Look out for better pictures to come. Ben
