On Monday afternoon, I will attend a rehearsal of my 2 minute play. I love this process. Learn so much about characters' interaction, pacing, interpretation. I'm excited to see this year's showcase. In the past, the 2 minute plays have been so entertaining-- a range of subjects and emotions.

Wine and Spirit: Rituals, Remedies and Revelry
January 30–April 10, 2011 in the Grand Gallery
Exhibition opening party January 29
Since its invention eight millennia ago, wine has been considered the elixir of the gods and the tonic of choice for ordinary mortals. Its uses range from religious to social to medicinal, with effects on the body and mind that run the gamut from spiritual elevation to physical and moral dissipation.
This traveling exhibition includes more than 100 objects that illustrate the transformative effects of wine. The earliest is a Neolithic wine jar dated 5400-5000 BCE; the latest, a 2009 painting by New York artist Leonard Porter. In between, works by 17th-century Dutch masters are featured alongside prints, drawings and photos by such artists as Honoré Daumier and Pablo Picasso. The show also includes Greek vases, Roman glassware, Renaissance vessels, rare books and manuscripts. Complete list of programs and events
This exhibition was organized by the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, South Hadley, MA, with support from the Warbeke Art Museum Fund and the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum Friends of Art. In Rochester, it is underwritten by the Estate of Irving Germanow, with additional support from Bob and Joanne Gianniny, ESL Federal Credit Union, and an anonymous gift in honor of Nancy Holowka and Karen Stolt.

This weekend on the farm . . .
Hmmm. Always work to do. The stormy weather this past week gave everyone a bit of pause. They had predicted 2 feet of snow, which (thankfully) didn't happen.
I created an infinity scarf. It's a loop that you can loop in a glamorous way and feel cozy warm.
I want to enter the 6X6 art exhibit at RoCo this year. It's a fund-raiser for the gallery, and in the past few years the entries have been wonderful. Unfortunately, I missed my opportunity to purchase some of the work. This year I will make a purchase. Have to get to the exhibit early!
