As you know, I’m headed for Chicago tomorrow via an Amtrak sleeper, there to see plays for The Wall Street Journal and revel in the company of Our Girl in Chicago, whom I’ve known and adored for years and years, even though she insists on living in another city, damn her. I probably won’t be posting again until I get where I’m going. OGIC has been fearfully busy with her day job, which is why you haven’t heard from her lately, but I’m hoping that she’ll take up some of the slack in my temporary absence. Once I arrive at her place on Friday, I expect we’ll have at least a few amusing things to report, but don’t be surprised if nothing new turns up in this space for the next couple of days.
To all those who read us regularly, I send our affectionate and appreciative regards. Much to my surprise, “About Last Night” has become one of the most widely read arts blogs in the world. You have made us so. We thank you most humbly, and we promise to do our best to be as readable in 2004 as we were in 2003.
May the New Year bring you joy and love. May it bring us all peace. And should it fail on either count, may you find comfort in the blessed world of art.
Next year in Chicago!
