Given the sometimes compelling but sometimes didactic Childs choreography, it may well be an improvement to have a “Dance” that lasts only one hour. The three remaining parts are nicely contrasted, a solo separating the busier group pieces. Those are full of precise patterns and constant spinning, skipping movement reflecting the burbling Glass score (this came towards the end of his music for his own ensemble; the opera “Satyagraha” followed in 1980).
The TrailsMany of the trails at Shades State Park, like others in the area, make use of ravine streambeds. It makes for some interesting hiking among rocky cliffs, ferns, moss, and trees towering above, but can also be a bit rugged at times. These trails include rocky footing, ladders in some cases, and significant ascents and descents for those who aren’t accustomed to hiking very much.
Film, or any art form, is very important in desperate times. In any time! It’s opening up people’s minds or giving them inspiration or hope. It will be interesting to see what happens now in the film industry with the films that come out of America!”Arterton also felt challenged by playing her character, Catrin.
When I read them at Le Metro, the response, in applause and overwhelming laughter, was the first I had received for anything I ever read in public, and I think it was an impetus to form a satiric proto folk rock group called The Fugs a few months later. One of the first Fugs songs, never, unfortunately, put on an album, was a ditty called Queen Love. FUG YOU has no sewer dwelling alligators hunted by a posse of misfits with shotguns, it has plenty of details that are equally preposterous and Pynchonesque.
Of course this being the first of the season, and not really summer, I didn’t go wild. No Bangkok chicken or deboned marinated greek lamb business. No truffled potatoes coated with duck fat sitting high above the grill in the roasting basket. Water features are especially beautiful in moon gardens. Fountains make soothing gurgling sounds, while still ponds and bird baths shimmer and shine with the moon’s reflection. Particularly attractive in a moon garden are large structural elements such as glass orbs, statues and sculptures.
In Michel de Certeau’s article, “Walking in the City,” he emphasizes the city is viewed differently by all who walk around and through it. This is the idea that each individual walking through a city has his or her subjective narrative, in which they project upon it. De Certeau writes, “This relationship of oneself governs the internal alterations of the place (the relations among its strata) or the pedestrian unfolding of the stories accumulated in place (moving about the city and traveling)” (110).
