Dinner with Friends
The play was written by Donald Margulies who teaches at Yale. It takes place in Connecticut. I felt as if I were at dinner with people who felt familiar. As a result, I am feeling a bit nostalgic for my old friends in Connecticut and for the rhythm of life there. I love Bloomington but the people here are different from those in the northeast. Not in a bad way. It is just different. I guess you can take the girl out of the northeast but you can't take the northeast out of the girl.
Anyway, it is time for bed and WAR AND PEACE. Believe me, it is much more interesting than SALT turned out to be. I never got past the second chapter of that one. It isn't a book I really wanted to read anyway. I just wanted to HAVE read it. You know what I mean? It is like that Stephen Hawking book that everyone wanted to have on their coffee table many years back. A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME. In good faith I started out to read it and in equally good faith, my eyes glazed over and I fell asleep. Several times. But, I kept it out for viewing anyway. How rediculous is that? I know I wasn't the only one.
