We celebrate the 250th Evening under Lamplight show, with a party triptych and then bring back Thoreau for some helpful observations about raising ourselves to higher planes, in touch with our “genius”, and then a final Hallelujah. You are invited to attend.

    Congratulations on this milestone of your 250th show!

    Where else could we go from Thoreau to “It’s my Party” to many other reflections with your uniquely seductive way of story-telling?

    Thanks for this, a labour of love as you say and perhaps, like Odysseus, an exploration of the world with a homecoming which is almost beyond reach–we are travelling with you and shall continue to do so!

    Sail on, captain!

    Or, as Whitman put it:
    Sail forth — steer for the deep waters only,
    Reckless O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me,
    For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go,
    And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

    O my brave soul!
    O farther farther sail!
    O daring joy, but safe! are they not all the seas of God?
    O farther, farther, farther sail!
