...spring! We're getting closer.
...the start of my French class in early March. How about a little French food to get in the mood? Doesn't pistou, a Provencal vegetable soup with basil and garlic sauce, sound so good? Here's a vegan recipe. I first read about it in Georgeanne Brennan's A Pig in Provence. I can't make to France, but I can make it to Marseille in New York City. Their version, $7.75, paired with crusty bread is hearty enough for an entire meal.
...the Banff Mountain Film Festival, which is coming to New York City's Symphony Space Monday, March 8 and Tuesday, March 9. Tickets are $21 in advance, $24 at the door. Check out their U.S. dates. I am not an extreme outdoors person by any means - a short hike is as far as I go. But I love to live vicariously through these adventurers. The cinematography is like National Geographic (one of their sponsors) come to life.
...the long-awaited return of one of my favorite singers, Natalie Merchant. I'm over the moon. She describes her upcoming album, Leave Your Sleep (due out in April), as "adaptations of poetry put to music." To me, her solo career and her work with 10,000 Maniacs is just that: poetry put to music.
Check out more performances from her BBC appearance.
Nursery Rhyme of Innocence and Experience, set to the haunting photographs of Arthur Leipzig.
