>the rites of such a species

>Vanessa asked me to join her for an evening at the Lincoln Center to see the New York City Ballet.

We met for dinner at Fairway Market.


It turns out neither of us is a lettuce snob.


Our appetizer hit the post-Aikido spot.


As did my main course.


Cultural immersion.


The most amazing/fierce/outstanding piece was “The Cage,” which Jerome Robbins choreographed to the music of Igor Stravinsky.

About “The Cage,” the playbill reads: “There occurs in certain forms of insect and animal life, and even in our own mythology, the phenomenon of the female of the species considering the male as prey. This ballet concerns the rites of such a species.”

Good news: My thesis has officially arrived at my grad school. Major sigh of relief.
