Lois Lowry's Blog
It is bitter, bitter cold (again!) but nonetheless I am headed to Maine to check out my new water supply and also because I have tickets to the Stone Mountain Arts Center (Brownfield, Maine, about 20 miles from my house) to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo----who would have guessed that African performers would be willing to come to the middle of nowhere in O degrees----or below!---to perform?! But folksinger Carol Noonan and her husband converted their barn into a fabulous theater and have enticed EVERYONE---(Judy Collins not long ago!)---to make the trek. Zulu singers/dancers will warm up a bitter cold night and it will be worth it.
In the meantime I am trying to see all the Oscar nominated movies ---and nominated actors and actresses---so have been on a movie-going spree: "The Reader" today, "Doubt" Friday night. I've also seen "Milk" and "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Revolutionary Road" recently---and just for kicks, "Last Chance Harvey," though it isn't nominated.
I've also seen "Frozen River," just for the record.
And I wil try to make myself see "The Wrestler" even though I don't want to.
And I am really really pissed off that "I've Loved You So Long" was not nominated anything.
Okay: off to Maine and to hear "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes"
