Because of pesky logistical challenges such as limited days off and mortgages to pay, another summer will likely go by without me getting myself to the Stratford Festival, even though the poster and headshot for Macbeth had me paying attention (not so much the side shot of the couple -- what a difference angles and lighting make), and even though I would really like to see A Little Night Music live (and performing it is also on the "maybe someday" list. World enough and time, verse the forty-first...).

The festival is also producing an adaptation of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I like the glimpse of the lion in their teaser and am intrigued by how Tom McCamus will play him.

Coincidentally, I came across [personal profile] antisoppist's "Bredon in Narnia" fic from 2009 while looking up something else a few minutes ago. It is short and delightful. The line about Turkish Delight is absolutely perfect.

* I am a novice at lap swimming, and today was my first experience both with the long course at the sportsplex and with sharing a lane. The guy I shared the lane with during most of my workout was very nice. I was glad I had the lane all to myself, however, when my right calf cramped up (about an hour in), because it meant I didn't have to hurry to get out of the way.

* Karen E. Summerly's photo of a cat delights me.

* There are new blossoms on the bean vines.

I am catching up on last Friday's NYT over breakfast. It doesn't mean anything, but I am nonetheless amused that the obituaries for Murray Lender (of Lender's Bagels fame) and Samuel Glazer (a co-creator of Mr. Coffee) are side by side on page B13.




Lori-Lyn Hurley is welcoming submissions to Spirit Voyage; the theme is "birth, nurture, and the Divine Feminine" and she's seeking "poetry, prose, visual artwork, or works that defy genre." The deadline is March 31.
