Tonight I was supposed to attend Shelter at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, but a nasty dance with bronchitis has me down for the match. (Once, in a letter Tom Robbins wrote to me, he explained he had been out of touch due to "...a few hot weeks in bed with my least favorite actress, Flu Barrymore." It has never been put better.) So I've deported my tickets to Friday, God (read: lungs) willing. Tomorrow night, again barring coughing complications, I will be attending a harpsichord recital by Jory Vinikour so that I might hear the piece by the excellent Harold Meltzer.

But for now, its Vicks Vap-O-Rub and a stack of movies. Not good at illness, not at all. Any helpful hints from the void?

The BAM's Shelter should not be confused with an opera-in-progress entitled Shelter by Juliet Palmer and Julie Salverson currently at the workshop stage with Toronto's Tapestry New Opera Works.


For this awful cold that's going around, I recommend shelter and sleep.

So sorry you are suffering...I'm sure the audience is grateful you stayed home!

For colds, Airborne is actually very comforting after the fact. They sell it as a "before" remedy, but it definitely helps with the "after" too.
