It’s Friday and my list of things that I want to do, things that I should do, and things that I have to do are not at all compatible. I’m counting down the hours to the weekend, to the Daytona 500, and to sitting by the warm fire with a new book.
For next week, if you’re from here in North Dakotaland, pencil into your schedule Mike Wittgraf’s performance of “Hearing Corwin Hall” on Thursday, February 21st at 7 pm in Hughes Fine Arts on the lovely campus of the University of North Dakota. Here’s the event info and here’s more on the piece which grew out of the Wesley College Documentation Project.
But for now, I have to do work on a frigid Friday and my work day starts with offering you some quick hits and varia:
- An Abandoned Greek Village.
- Displacement and the Humanities.
- Textbooks and Templates in Byzantine Studies.
- Narcissus in Pompeii.
- Pompeii Artistic Landscape Project.
- Ancient Graffiti.
