Business and pleasure

Last night, I had to attend Wellesley's annual Quintessence Day lecture, which this year featured Anna Deavere Smith. I say "had to attend," but I mean "had the distinct pleasure of attending." I knew Anna was cool and a fabulous actress -- c'mon, I watch the West Wing -- but I didn't know that she was a gifted playwright as well. The pieces she performed from Twilight: Los Angeles were simply stunning. If she is ever performing within a 200-mile radius of you, go see her.

(I'm super bossy this week, eh? I'm okay with that.)
