Amenities of Civilization

Last night we went to see West Side Story at the new Gerding Theater downtown. (According to the program notes, it was originally going to be about Catholics vs. Jews. I wonder what that would've done to the fight scenes?) This morning, we checked out Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination, at OMSI, and had a late breakfast afterwards at Cup and Saucer on Hawthorne. Stopped at the Dollar Scholar, where spending five bucks feels like a major shopping spree, and bought several plastic animals to deploy in the furtherance of the Horse Project.

Urban life, still a novelty after a decade living on the coast. It's nice to be back.
