Now there are more than 200 members of the MeetUp group “Finding Female Friends Over 50” which was started in January. Yesterday four members joined me for the final performance of the Sonoma County Philharmonic, and the reception afterwards for artists, volunteers, donors and sponsors. A wonderful day!
September 2 was the final performance of Shakespeare at the Cannery, and Barbara H. and I saw Fairy Worlds which was a version of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Barbara had been preoccupied all summer with her daughter’s wedding and move from the state of Washington to Novato, so she won me back by taking me to dinner at LoCoco on Fourth Street. Because the Labor Day weekend was so blistering hot, she got away with buying me only a salad and a glass of wine, but it was good!
My skirt has no pockets, so my Fiat key is dangling from my bracelet. The politics of seat placement was interesting. I had a low, beach chair but Barbara’s was normal height, so we were sidelined. The performance was very energetic and fun. Beautiful acting, beautiful costumes, great audience participation, much enthusiasm.So much Shakespeare for me this year. Next year I hope to see both performances at the Cannery.
