Two Pics Today

Here's the newest pic of Little Will, this one taken on Easter Sunday.
Oh, the other thing I wanted to say is that one can eat the leaves of the wild sweet violets, in a salad-- along with, of course, the wild dandelions-- they are both very rich in minerals, and good for you. Just make sure dogs haven't done their wets on them beforehand (you can usually tell by the smell.) I also wanted to say something about the Swan Lake production a bunch of us saw the other night at the Colonial Theatre. This was Matthew Bourne's 'all male' version-- if you've seen the film Billy Elliott, they have a scene from it at the very end, where all the swans are male, and the King of the Swans and the human Prince fall in love. It was too beautiful for words-- it was only in town for four days, so if you want to see it you have to go somwhere else to do so. Thursday night's performance, which Kevin Merry and a friend tried to go to, was cancelled because the curtain wouldn't go up. To quote the headline in the New York Post the day after the first Stonewall Riots, "Queen Bees Stinging Mad!"
