A couple last hurrahs before the hurricane hit! Tanglewood Friday night, and Jacob's Pillow on Saturday.
This is my setup for Tanglewood. I love my candle. And I love my nook. Oh, and my new iphone that has the nook app. So many ways to read in the moment!
Friday night, the BSO (or maybe the Pops?) performed a concert of Porgy and Bess. I've always wanted to see Porgy and Bess, but I have to admit that I Do Not Like Opera. I like La Boheme, but I suspect that I like it for it's short length as much as the music.
So, I'm a Philistine when it comes to the opera. And I have no issues with reading during the parts between songs that I like (note - I wasn't even tempted to read during John Williams' and the Pops Film Night). Especially when I've only paid 9 bucks and I'm on the Lawn.
I wasn't tempted to read much at Jacob's Pillow - just a bit during intermission. I've always wanted to go there, and to see the Mark Morris Dance Company. It was all that I imagined. Look how beautiful it is:
My freshman year at BYU, I took a modern dance class because my mother loved modern dance. I wasn't much good at the dancing, but I spent a whole lot of time learning about modern dance pioneers. Mom just kept coming to mind as I walked the grounds that those pioneers founded. I can't believe that I only live an hour away, and can do this every summer.
