Been busy lately, forgot to post. Bill is now home again from his month-long sun-soak in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Extremely happy to see him, we missed each other hugely.
But in the interests of maintaining some documentation about my meandering internal world (if for no-one other than myself), here goes.
First, some links that caught my interest in the last week or so:
- The World Clock
- Cap and Trade
- Zach Hanna’s photo blog
- The Battle Within
- The 515 Chemicals Women Wear
- Evan Ratliff’s Attempt to Vanish
- The Inventive Capacity of the Scots
And now a few stories/links to organizations that may explain the incredible sense of community that makes Juneau so special to me :
- Sharing the Warmth
- Hats for the Homeless
- Freedom of Expression
- REACH – an Amazing Organization
- The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council
- Out and About for the week of Nov 27
- First Friday Art Walk
Tonight we have a dilemma. It’s the First Friday Art Walk (see above link) which in December each year is huge. It’s also Family Fun night at Harborview Elementary School where one grandson goes, and we have tickets to see Leading Ladies at Perseverance Theatre. Tomorrow we eat a 5-course Cuban dinner at the Canvas at REACH as a fundraiser for studio scholarships, Sunday it’s A Wonderful Life put on by Perseverance in the new (and lovely) Thunder Mountain High School theatre/auditorium. Other tickets on our desk are for Dracula (Perseverance students, including a grandson) on the 12th, The Nutcracker (Juneau Dance Unlimited) on the 13th, and The Gift of the Magi/Last Leaf (Opera to Go) on the 18th. And the best part of all of this: the admission fees are low, the performances are high quality, and we can walk to most of them…….
