We were traveling back from the school Baccalaureate service, and so missed the squall. By the time we were on the coast again, all was calm. Kids went exploring and returned after two hours to report that our youngest had climbed Squam rock--not an easy feat. Tomorrow we are off early for Prize Day (graduation) and we'll head west toward home from there, afterwards. So tonight is our last time by the ocean until July. I'm trying to absorb enough horizon and wave sounds to keep me going until then.
We've been doing a lot of reading aloud this week - mostly Swallows and Amazons, which my daughter is just discovering.
Maybe it's because of the way today started, or maybe it's the new season - I was thinking about small beginnings all day.
This was the set for Mr. O'Reilly's office at the steel mill in tonight's premiere performance of Speak American at City Theatre. (They offered me tickets as a blogger...) I particularly liked the set, and the way multimedia was used, with archival newsreels and still photography projected onto factory-style windows on either side of the stage.
