hong kong arts festival

This card arrived---I kid you not---while The Nutcracker Suite was playing in the background on the radio. The New York City Ballet is making its first ever visit to Hong Kong, for the Hong Kong Arts Festival this March. When I was in grad school in New York, I often went to the ballet. When I lived in Kyoto, I jumped at a chance to get tickets to a Bolshoi performance in Osaka. I sigh now about being asked at an intermission if I were a dancer with the troupe. At the time, I laughed. The card, from a Hong Kong postcrosser, brings exciting news.
