A Quick Hello

I've been out and about, over here and over there. I've lots of notes to write up including visits to new spots and adventures in new places. I've not time for that this evening, but I'd like to say a quick hello.

Quick hellos are important in life. In times when you can easily go a day without talking to another person, it's important to connect. Friends know you're friends, and family knows you love them, but sometimes a quick hello is all you need to put a smile on their faces. With all of the shared history, sometimes an "I'm thinking of you" or "I hope you're well" is in order. We may not have time to sit down for a coffee, but a message through e-mail or text can brighten someone's day.

So, hi there reader. For an added bonus, since our shared history is short, here is a picture of a sea turtle to get a smile on your face. This is from recent travels to Punaluu Beach on the south side of the Big Island.

I Marched, What's Next?

What can we do? There has to be more than writing letters and posting on social media. This is a work in progress, but these are my thoughts...
Stay educated. If you think the media is misleading you, take charge. Know your sources. Do your research. You don't have to consume the 24-hour repetitive cycle of media. You can focus and keep it to the point. I like NPR, Popular Science, and the technical sources (department sites). If you're curious about education, go to the Dept of Education site! You want to know about the job rates? Go to the Department of Labor reports.

Educate each other. We are failing in this. We need to talk about the issues. Not just reposting articles, but face-to-face or virtually with a personal spin and follow up. We need to have meaningful discussions about the current state of affairs and what is happening. We can only act together if we work together. But serious discussion, not Facebook posts!

A Right Regal Bonsoir (or Imperial Bedroom Revisited)

Elvis Costello doesn't mess around. Last night, at The Chicago Theater, I witnessed a true delight of the senses. Out of respect for the artist's wishes, as requested, I didn't take any pictures or video of the performance. You'll have to live through my description and a grainy, preshow snap.

Wild Horticulture (Little Shop of Horrors)

Last night, I saw Little Shop of Horrors (Crown Point Community Theater edition). This fan-favorite has stood the test of time. People still pack in to see this 80s musical based on a 60s movie. Big production or small, the catchy tunes and dark yet quirky storyline keep people humming and laughing.

CPCT has a great range of shows. From Sartre's thought-provoking No Exit to the whimsical, yet mature, Happily Ever Once Upon they bring entertainment to the community. CPCT brings in plays that are far from mainstream. Evenso, it was a delight to see this classic musical.
