The two scholars in this picture both wear glasses... at least that's what I tell myself. Still plugging away...

Piggy-back turtles

Piggy-back turtles, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Today's trip to the zoo yielded lots of colorful photos of tulips (Spring Bloom at the Cincinnati Zoo), a beautiful macaw, a trio of peacock and hens, a big rhino and one scary looking python. But I was smitten with these leap-frogging turtles.

Tibetan Sand Mandala

These five days, Xavier is hosting the Gomang Buddhist monks who are creating a sand mandala for viewing. You can see them in the midst of creating it via webcam here.

Here's a close-up where you can see the long thin tubes that they use to funnel the colored sand.

A few of my favorite things... (You have to celebrate the weather or it will kill you.)

Taming of the Shrew

Taming of the Shrew, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company has a high school company called the Groundlings. Both Johannah and Noah have been a part of it. It meets from Sept. to April every Saturday. This year, Johannah's company produced "The Taming of the Shrew" with a gender twist. The casting reversed all roles. Boys played girl parts and girls played boy parts. Notice "fair Bianca" in the red headband next to Johannah (in the brown leather jacket). Kate is the boy in the red shiny shirt, lipstick ala Rocky Horror Picture Show and the black pants.

Great performances and a trifle sad for our family. Jacob and Liam have no interest in participating in these Shakespeare companies so after seven years of intimate involvement with these professional actors through Noah and Johannah, we'll be bidding them anon.

In the City of Blinding Lights

Downtown near the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company's theater. Johannah performed in Taming of the Shrew tonight. My curtain call shot failed so I'll try again tomorrow night. I liked this photo well enough as a substitute.

Though hot cross buns are a British tradition on Good Friday, we've always eaten them on Easter morning.
