Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 243

Happy Diwali! Celebrating the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance seems very timely this year.

This evening, we attended a live concert by Laura Benanti in support of performing art organizations around the country (in our case, Oregon Shakespeare Festival). We’d only seen her as Melania on The Late Show , but that was enough to pique our interest; she’s much more interesting in her own right, and I really enjoyed her singing (especially her 15-minute My Fair Lady). She asked viewers to post a selfie of us enjoying the concert on social media, so here’s ours.
