If you want to appeal to a local audience and support the arts, check this out.
Regular readers of this space know that I’m the General Manager for Cappella Clausura. Aside from looking for volunteers for our group, running front of house, and doing all the other things I do, one of my other responsibilities is to find advertisers who’ll help defray the costs of keeping the doors open and the lights on.
That’s where you come in, dear readers. Do you own a small business that would benefit from advertising in Cappella Clausura’s programs? Would you benefit from buying linkspace on our website? If the answer is yes, (or even maybe) then I have all of the details below to help you contribute the arts and drive customers to your door at the same time.
Well, Rory has seen a lot in is trip at HMNH. It’s taken four previous posts that you can view here, here, here, and here. This is the last in the HMNH series. Rory had a very busy day, but, as you’ll see, he got quite a sendoff from the staff when it was time to go home.
Rory has made his way through much of HMNH at this point. In mypreviousposts, he’s seen much of what the museum has to offer and even got a “backstage entrance”. Thus far we haven’t seen Rory’s visit to the crown jewel of the HMNH collection, the Glass Flowers.
As I indicated in my post from the other day, my trip to HMNH with Rory involved a lot of photography. Enough that if I put it all in one post I’d either crash WordPress or everyone would give up because it was tl;dr. So, today we’ll see the photos from some of the parts of the museum that feature more dead things, though not quite as old. That’s right, I’m talking about taxidermy.
Today I took Rory out for his first Harvard adventure. As I printed Rory at work at MIT he’s seen a little of that campus. Tuesday, after I finished work at Harvard, Rory had a chance to see some of the, erm, flora and fauna of HMNH. Ok, less flora and more fauna.
After the post I wrote most recently and some discussions I’ve had with people in various parts of my life, I’ve run across a fair number of people who seem to think that this schedule I’ve been living, this logging of 60-70 hours of work a week, minimum, is fun. That I do it because I like it and that somehow I’m not aware that it is inherently bad for me.
They are so, SO very wrong. But they refuse to understand that this has been a matter of survival. This has been the way that I’ve adapted to keep us afloat and alive and not living on the streets. So few people truly understand that our economy here in the US has fundamentally changed. Geoff and I are living proof that the old way, each having one job, having some security in that job, buying a house, and then eventually retiring just isn’t the way things work anymore.
Regular readers will recall that a little while back I said we’d be away for a while due to the death of a friend. Truth be told, his loss was, at the time, the latest in a long string of Very Hard Things 2015 had handed us.
It seems, however, that June might bright A New Hope. (Sorry) But, before we get to the good stuff, let’s go over where we’ve been, shall we?
Featuring the Music of Hildegard von Bingen, Arvo Pärt, Eric Whitacre, and a premiere of Hilary Tann‘s exuberant “Exultet” for reed quintet and double chorus, arranged especially for Cappella Clausura, and with special guest Peggy Pearson, oboe. Hilary will be at each concert and will stay after each performance for a post concert talk-back with the audience.

I got word last week that my job is going to be outsourced to external contractors, with the idea that the organization will save money in the long run. I can’t say I agree, but I guess what I think doesn’t quite matter as much anymore, now that my job has an expiration date. My last day is March 20th.
So once again, I will be looking for a job. And I am just thrilled, let me tell you.
