the half life i half remember from high school: “The time required to convert one half of a reactant to product. The term is commonly applied to radioactive decay, where the reactant is the parent isotope and the product is a daughter isotope.“
the half life (by john mighton) i just saw with Maya, the CanStage production at the Bluma Appel theatre = fantastic. i am always nervous seeing a play. when they are bad, they are very very bad. but when they are good . . .
it was so full of ideas. M and I both had the urge to read the play, pen in hand to underline passages. i can’t really describe why it was so good: it was honest and earnest, well acted and well staged, funny and sad, intelligent and emotional.
it runs til feb. 3rd so see it if ya can.
AND the goodness of the play made it totally worth it to miss the winter premiere of heroes, which Adam says was only OK. except for the part where the body of Eden was found *in a lake near Sudbury* hahaha. that is so exotic. oh writers of Heroes.
AND this evening also qualifies as new year’s resolution fulfillment (see maya). check.
AND good night. xo.
