Post dramatis

Wonderful time down in Ashland, Oregon, seeing plays, getting a bit of hiking in; weather kind of turned on us, as in following us down there from Seattle.  Usually being there is guaranteed summer, but it was variable this time.  One outdoor play, As You Like It, was almost three hours in a cold downpour at night.  The cast applauded the audience for enduring.
But overall, it was a wonderful time.  We cooked and ate in our lodgings more this time, with our dear offspring along. We all saw a version of an ancient Chinese legend, The White Serpent, which was one of the best performances. There was a performance of Romeo and Juliet that amazed us, even after numerous previous experiences. And a performance of Chekov's The Seagull, which was deeply moving.
We got to a local farmers market, and up on Mount Ashland. Different wildflowers display themselves in different windows of time; we weren't terrified by any giant rattlesnakes this year.
It's always marvelous.

Yes, R&J, As You Like It, Chekhov and White Snake were the memorable ones.
