A question to all you culture writers and artists out there: How do you cope with the guilt of not getting to experience even a fraction of your city's arts offerings? It's an embarrassment of riches.
Times are hard. But people are harnessing their creative energies as much as they've ever done. If only I could find a creative solution to the problem of there not being enough days and nights in the week to see all the work being produced. Did I say "all"? If I went out to experience a performance every single evening of the week, caught gallery shows and other daytime activities in the light hours and saw all the matinees I could, I still couldn't hope to cover the Bay Area's cultural scene at the most basic level.
Quick: Someone invent a drug that will allow me to be in 19 places at once.
