In celebration of Beltane, a celtic festival marking the height of spring, I have been perusing bookstores in Chicago, looking for new authors and new books. Have a lovely list that I am starting and will share soon. But today I listened to The English nightingale: virtuoso recorder music from the renaissance to romantic: piers adams and howard beach....stunning stunning performance of amazing music. Tomorrow is Shakespeare (Taming of the Shrew) AND lecture/conversation at the Chicago Public Library by Peter Carey.
We all celebrate the return of warmth and the sun but Chicago must have a million tulips to do it with. Even if the blossoms are 3 weeks ahead of their scheduled festival. Earth Day is this week too, global warming has never been more contested. The Celts had a greater respect for nature that we might heed.
