Nine years ago I read the Moby Dick novel with rie Anderson performed her multi-media "Songs and Stories of Moby Dick", I attended not once, but twice. First was the kick-off of the tour in Dallas. Months later, a friend and I flew to New York for the final night's performance of the tour. I was hooked on reading about the great whaling era in New England.
So on a recent visit to New Bedford, I could really feel the history of the town. I've dreamt about it too. Ahoy there, Matey!
If you're curious, have a look at Laurie Anderson's website. She has been an ongoing creative inspiration to me for many years.
