Two Summer Recommendations

Toni and I are off to Chelsea today, but last night's jaunts are worth telling you about. We saw
The Shapes of Space at the Guggenheim and Romeo and Juliet at Shakespeare Theater in Central Park. Total cost: $2 with $7 more for the chicken sandwich we ate during the en'tracte at the play.

Both events were very enjoyable. They led to a lively discussion regarding Ontology. The R & J is the first in 40 years in the park. Mercutio and Juliet were terrific and all the parts were played well.

The novice plays to the invited guests, the master plays to the gallery.


Listen well to the disputes of the philosophers within yourself, but never sit at their feet.
