I use "commonitions" instead of "aids" for obvious reasons. Let the Coasties use what they will. They're Homeland Security. At least I'm a day ahead of stuff this week...
- In case you're bored with your own "little placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity," the H.P. Lovecraft walking tours should help you enjoy the early Spring snow in Providence RI, March 17 at 11 a.m. and March 18 at 1 p.m., led by the Providence Preservation Society and the Rhode Island Historical Society. Thanks to Brown University's Public Humanities Program. Keep a watch for ancient deities.
- Or go your own way and enjoy the kookoo cthulhu stylings of this walkabout.
- Wit, the surprisingly engaging response play is presented by Your Theatre in NewBedford. I remember acting at YT five-six years ago and discussing the play with a fellow director, wondering if Margaret Edson's principal material (terminal cervical cancer) wouldn't drive off the regulars. Since then, this whole community has felt the loss of a great spirit, Mary Magnan, to ovarian cancer. Her husband John created a traveling art exhibit responding in a way which has healed a lot of hurt around here. And obviously given other artists the wind to take on the issue themselves.
- Speaking of wind... It's time for the New Bedford Half-Marathon. And then, I suppose, the New Bedford Three-Quarter Symphony. Or the New Bedford One-Third Ballet.
