Yesterday was Mabon, or Autumn Equinox. We went to Shakespeare's Globe and saw Othello, with Mark Rylance as Iago. Remind me never to wear mascara, or contact lenses, when going to the theatre to watch a tragedy. It was superb. Go and be a groundling, cheap tickets are always available for that, and it's what we usually do. It's good standing practice, your T'ai Chi will stand you in good stead amongst the wilting tourists, and the play will keep your attention off your sore feet. You can bring your own food and drink too, which is so much more egalitarian. The days of throwing rotten vegetables at the players are over, however.
