My wife Cat’s been off all week. So far we’ve been to “Marvin Hamlish Directs the San Diego Symphony’s Summer Pops Music Thing At a Beautiful Outdoor Setting On the Edge of the Stunningly Beautiful San Diego Bay for the Fourth of July (are we old yet?); the Richard Avedon show at the San Diego Museum of Art (which includes a full frontal nude shot of Rudolph Nureyev that makes you wonder how the man ever leaped at all); San Diego’s jazz club Anthology to see the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (where I got to meet and chat with the Hall’s founder, when, thinking I was someone else, she introduced herself to me); The San Diego Zoo; San Diego’s Wild Animal Park; and, last night, to San Diego’s Old Globe Theater to see their splendid production of “Cyrano de Bergerac,” which is about a guy with a giant nose who’s quite the wit.
Now, today, in about two hours, we leave for a two-day visit to Disneyland. Then it’s back to regular life.
