Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

On Friday, James and I went to see the Wind-Up Bird Chronicle workshop at the Ohio Theatre in SoHo. Combined with elements of theatre, cinema, puppetry, it was a very good production. I was pleasantly surprised in how engaged I was in the story since the book is not the easiest one to read. It’s denser than most of his other novels and quite long.

Portions of the book were cut out so that it could be well adapted for the play itself, including my favorite characters – Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Creta, but otherwise, the play did a good job of getting the point across.

Murakami is a current obsession of mine and I hope that others will revel in his spellbinding stories.

The Wolf Moon - Night of January 29-30th

The night of the 29th to the 30th was the night of the Wolf Moon – it will appear about 14 percent wider and 30 percent brighter than the typical full moon. It was really beautiful looking at the moon while walking through SoHo. I wish I had a rooftop to look at it from.

Sunday was uneventful, I woke up a little bit late only to find out that I’d forgotten about going to Tea Time at the Crosby hotel with Jiye and Christine (I’ll post a photo up later). We enjoyed finger sandwiches, scones and tea and there was a great ambiance to just chat about life.

Later that night I went over to Christine’s to find a shaved Ellie (she looks like a different dog!) and to watch the Grammy’s.
