On theater and sickness

25, 26 and 27 of January were days of exhilaration and stress: my students performed The Taming of the Shrew 4 times...And I lived to tell the tale! Not quite, though - the next day I was down with pneumonia - and I am still recovering. Well, Molier and a few other favorite thespians died on stage, so it is not really anything unusual!

Wow! The pictures of your theatre performance look great! Congratulations!

Pneumonia is a nasty one. Thankfully we have quite few drugs that we throw at it so that it goes away. I hope all is going well!

I love these movies!
