This evening Sydney and I went out. We met up after our classes, had dinner at Moosewood, the famous Ithaca vegetarian restaurant (and source for some great cookbooks!), and then attended a visiting company’s performance of The Tempest at our local theatre. I can’t remember the last time we went out for such an evening, so this was a real treat. Plus, The Tempest happens to be the one Shakespeare play Sydney has found time to read, and it is the one Shakespeare play I have taught, so we felt we needed to seize the opportunity.
