    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.

Feeding Frenzy in the Park

On my way to the tennis courts to see Christine play, I came across this robin’s nest precariously balanced on the smooth limb of a Plane tree.  There was so much frenetic fluttering whenever the mother or father flew in with a beakful of insects that a hand-held camera was out of the question. I returned the following day with my tripod, fully expecting the nest to be on the ground and the nestlings dead–but there they were, as active as ever, giving my auto-focus a terrible time. These are the best of a poorly-focused bunch. Click on them for the best view:
