TT: Right on time

I don’t feel like looking back today–I’ve been doing more than enough of that in recent postings. Suffice it to say that 2006 was scary and happy in like proportions, with the latter finally edging out the former.


This year, like last year, will be busy, and since I haven’t any shows to see until Sunday, I’ve decided to vanish into the woods of Connecticut to catch up on my writing. Except for the daily almanac and the usual theater-related postings on Thursday and Friday, I don’t plan to blog for the rest of the week. (If I change my mind, kindly give me hell.) I don’t know what Our Girl has in mind, but I’ll leave it to her.


Have a nice week, and a nice year.

TT: My (public) New Year’s resolutions

- To finish Hotter Than That: A Life of Louis Armstrong. (The contract will help!)


- To see fewer plays–and write more thoughtfully about the ones I do see.


- To spend more time listening to music, not in the background or on the fly, but with the total concentration and involvement that it deserves.


- To read Bleak House and War and Peace at long last, and report on my progress in this space.


- To go to the gym four days a week, every week.


- To take more time off.


- To visit the Grand Canyon.

TT: Almanac

Come, children, gather round my knee;

Something is about to be.


Tonight’s December Thirty-First,

Something is about to burst.


The clock is crouching, dark and small,

Like a time bomb in the hall.


Hark! It’s midnight, children dear.

Duck! Here comes another year.


Ogden Nash, “Good Riddance, but Now What?”
