The food is great, the weather is heavenly, the few friends I have time to see (or run into on the street or in the library) are wonderful, and I also have work to do and deadlines to meet. So here, to make us all drool, is some of what you and I are missing here in the Bay Area (and a little South of here --the Aquarium is all the way in Monterey, but it counts):
"Matisse: Painter as Sculptor” at SFMOMA
“Wild About Otters” exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium
A whole Prokofiev series conducted by the fabulous Michael Tilson Thomas (a.k.a. MTT), the SF Symphony’s maestro. Note: MTT is one of the best Prokofiev conductors around. (Also Mahler. Also Gershwin!)
The “Salsa for a Cause” fundraiser for the Women of Color Resource Center in Oakland tomorrow (well, today – it’s after midnight)…
The annual Pride parade on Sunday (because I'll still be in another part of the Bay Area that day with my friend who just had surgery). Of course, there isn’t just the main Pride march. Huge list of events here.
Episcopalians and other Anglicans please note: Davis Mac-Illya is supposed to be marching with the Oasis-California contingent.
