Time is changing. November 1, 2020. Clocks back one hour. New season. Move on. The Metropolitan Museum of Art features a fashion exhibition about time. Black outfits through time, positioned around a swinging pendulum, like a clock. I bought the T-shirt. I will show it off with my black jeans when the weather warms up.
Sequestered at home on the Upper East Side of New York during this pandemic, I watch too many lectures, concerts, classes, and theatrical performances via Zoom. One day I saw seven! The Irish Rep adapted Eugene O’Neill’s A Touch of the Poet to Zoom, with each actor performing from home but seemingly acting on a common stage. The director had his job cut out for him coordinating the moves.
