 “ANNA IN THE TROPICS” AT STUDIOS MINI REVIEW… Bob and I truly enjoyed this very interesting, well-cast and directed play at the Studios!  It captured a slice of Key West Life that is long gone…a simpler  time when the cigar making industry in Key West flourished!  It was a Pulitzer Prize- winning play by Nilo Cruz.  Directed by award-winning Dennis Zacek of Chicago….the play recounted the tradition of the lector, a person hired to educate and entertain workers by reading aloud to them as they hand-roll cigars.  The  actors , Christian Haler, Mira Negron, Francesca Silva, Mathias Maloff, Aramis Ikatu, and Daniel Bochlas, plus Brooklyn actress, Nayem Cardenas-Lopez were all very good and we were caught up in their personal stories and  how these people survived in those early days, of cock fighting, cigar-making…. with no AC or the conveniences we are used to.  Great job, Dennis and Company!!!!!  

AUDUBON SOCIETY SPEAKER…..MARCH 4….Speaker will be photo-based artist, Alice Hargrave, who creates visual representations of bird songs.  6:30 pm at the KW Library at 700 Fleming St.  Theme is ‘Last Calls: Why Save That Simple Brown Bird?’  FREE and open to all.

I do believe that when we all send prayers and good vibes to those in need, those prayers mystically meet and surround those being prayed for.  Sometimes we pray for miracles and the impossible….sometimes we pray to just cope with the results of what happens to those we are praying for.  Sometimes we pray for strength to go on and to accept…sometimes we pray for thanksgiving.  We are in this thing called ‘Life’ together….and we all have power within us to help our fellow man.  Bless you for remembering our loved ones….Prayer changes things!  Let me know if you know of anyone who should be added to this list.

*** THE PISCES PERSONALITY….FEBRUARY 20 THRU MARCH 20TH ***

This is either the sign of the saint or the sinner…or BOTH rolled into one! The symbol of Pisces are two fish swimming in different directions….and this describes the way Pisces can hit the heights or sink to the lowest depths. It’s a sign of extremes. Pisceans often come off as ‘otherworldly’….they are swayed by their emotions. The result is that Pisces is the sign of the Dreamer…the Visionary…the Saint! One of the most outstanding attributes of a Piscean is their kindness. They have a bottomless reservoir of compassion for others, even when they suspect they are being conned by them. They work hard for their favorite charities or local good causes….though you may not know anything about it as they don’t like advertising their good works. Many Pisceans say they go through life as in a dream, drifting and floating and at the mercy of whatever fate has to offer them. They have a great capacity to show emotion, and are easily moved to tears by TV shows that present suffering. They also struggle to face up to harsh reality. They hate unpleasant situations, harsh facts, and confrontations. They hate the awfulness of what is in the news….preferring to look at the world through rose colored glasses. They can actually deceive themselves into thinking things are better than they really are. They wear their heart on their sleeve, and what a huge heart they have!

They are born romantics, but that makes them very sensitive to hurt and pain. They pour out their affection to their favorite people. Most Pisceans are faithful…but some have a big capacity for deception and may be juggling a string of lovers! They see the best in others, which is why they have so many admirers. However, it also puts them at risk of potential heartbreak because it makes them blind to a loved one’s failings. The best signs for a Pisces are Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, Libra, and Capricorn.

Pisceans are drawn to professions that are incredibly glamorous and artistic or those involving service to others. They are interested in careers as actors, photographers, dancers, designers, the cosmetic industry, and fashion. Many devote their lives to looking after others especially in hospitals, prisons and hospices. They can be totally self-sacrificing. They may also be attracted to the religious or contemplative life. Needless to say many are also living on the wrong side of the law. The best signs for a Piscean are Libra….Scorpio….Cancer and another Pisces.

WE LOVE OUR PISCES FRIENDS & FAMILY MEMBERS & WISH THEM A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
