I've gotten out and about. Saturday, L and I and a friend went to see The History Boys; how many movie premises are built around the subjunctive case?? We all liked it a lot. It's always great to see NO HOLLYWOOD MOVIE STARS emoting. This cast is just amazing--so talented on all fronts.
Sunday, we went on downtown's open house tour, looking at new construction in an area being revitalized. Lofts, "townhomes" (lots of stairs, there; not for the weak of knee'd). Can't help wondering where the displaced residents are moving, though. In a town near where I went to college was a famous bit of graffiti: "Gentrification Is War!" The local arts association is installing a series of sculptures (!) along the sidewalk. How soon will they be graffitied, I wonder.
Today: yoga workshop with a teacher from California. Very intensive lower body work; lots of great toned women in there (one lone man) from all over. Right now, I'm feeling quite stretched out, like a gumby with old joints. Great to do some yoga asanas from a different perspective; it makes me think about things in a new way, which is what is expected of all this.
