Inquiring readers: My funny bone has yet to tickle me during this pandemic. I am still writing my Emma. film review. My tongue-in-cheek inspiration is coming back in dribs and drabs, but it hasn’t quite jelled.

Meanwhile, I’ve been meeting with friends, Janeites, and fellow volunteers online via Zoom and sharing ways to keep one’s mind preoccupied with loftier things than the constant doom and gloom droning on the news.

I’ve placed some concerts, virtual museum tours, and fine art discussions in this post to help you/us liven up our isolation.

Starting tonight they are:

ART: Cocktails with the Curator of the Frick Museum: A half hour discussion 5 pm every Friday. When I visit NYC, I always make an effort to stop at the Frick Museum. Previous discussions are available on YouTube. Download the APP for a gallery tour.

These acoustic concerts have held me enthralled for a number of years. Try one. You’ll find that singers sound so much better in an intimate setting. Click here to try a few.
