End of the Season: Blue Moon

“By their Fruits” A. Ierardi

Blue Moon in Pisces

Born in the sign of the fish I thrive on movement, fluidity, change. Yesterday I woke up with zero motivation. My dreams had brought me to many places. In comparision, Day seemed empty and cloudy.  We drove to Hyannis with Dolce. Rain started. We found an outdoor covered  cafe.  Alberto’s!

A friendly waiter,  dog lover, brought Dolce water. Judy  ordered pasta. I ordered canelloni. We watched the world go by.   La Dolce Vita!


If you were in Boston in the early seventies you may have read George Frazier in the Boston Globe. His favorite word was from Andalusian Spanish. Duende meant in Stud Terkel’s words: grace, wit  and class.

Renewed by a good meal and a happy pooch I spent the remainder of the day alternating between my music studio and my art studio.  Every so often I engage in a painting blast with old or unfinished work. Sort of like an “Art Revival.”

Duende is blooming here on Cape Cod. Anthony and Joe threw a magnificent 50th anniversary dinner for our good friends Ed and Ellen with champagne and an Italian rum cake.

Cape Rep Theatre

At Cape Rep Theatre we witnessed a most amazing performance of “The Pianist of Willesden Lane” a one-woman show starring Mona Golabek. It is based on her mother’s life during the Holocaust in Austria and her escape to England. A classical prodigy her music was her salvation. Her daughter plays the pieces on the piano as she tells a story of courage and love in the face of devestating tragedy.    Incredibly emotional and stunning experience for us and our neighbors in this intimate theatre in Brewster.

An Authentic Gesture

This poster was inspired by the words of Isadora Duncan.

“All my Life I have stuggled to make one authentic gesture.”

Over the years Judy and I visited New York City to enjoy theatre, art, and jazz. Customarily, we met Lois and Stan Silk for dinner. Lois was a ballet dancer.

“Loie” Lautrec A. Ierardi

She taught us the “Silk stretch.”  Loie continued to dance into her seventies.  One time she was unable to meet us. Amazingly, we bumped into each other on Restaurant Row with enough time for a cafe au lait!
