I love Mr. Phillips’ tree. This is the work of a very good artist. I am reminded of the West Coast of Canada, where I lived for several happy years. Looking at that tree cheered me up. It is an old tree, but age has graced it.
Let me tell a story. Monday, I had a doctor’s appointment. I took a cab. I have been feeling a little depressed and feared driving. So many drivers exceed the speed limit or will not allow a person to change lanes.
On my way back home, the cab driver, who was not an immigrant, many are, told me that, if immigrants were unhappy here, they should go back home. We didn’t need them.
So, I told him that they were home.
THE ROYAL BABY
Fortunately, the Royal baby was born on an otherwise sad Monday. I was very happy to learn that the Duchess of Sussex was delivered of her baby boy safely. I was afraid it would be a difficult birth and hoped she would give birth in a hospital.
Prince Harry said that he was very proud of his wife. I am also very proud of Meghan. The baby is beautiful, and I have never seen a happier Prince Harry.
Congratulations to the happy parents and their Royal baby: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. I love him.

This is a short post. My next post is nearly ready. I am not discussing Mélicerte, but Mélicerte and La Pastorale comique were both performed at Saint-Germain-en-Laye and the action of both plays takes place in the Vale of Tempe, in Greece.
These two plays were never performed at the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, la troupe du roi‘s Paris venue. Le Sicilien ou l’Amour peintre was performed at both locations: Saint-Germain, successfully, and the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, less successfully.
Love to everyone 💕
(I edited or eliminated comments I made in the Comments section of my post on Molière’s Mélicerte. There are events I should forget. I’m still alive.)
