Nevertheless She Persisted - For Allan Morgan - My ProsperoFriday, February 10, 2017
The events in our neighbour to the South break my heart but I have resolved not to rant or complain particularly in social media. Such is the volume of the rants and concerns by my Facebook friends that my friend John Lekich refuses to read anything about them stating that it makes him forget that he is a Canadian and that he is living in Canada. Social media blurs those borders.
I was particularly moved by my friend Allan Morgan whom I call my Prospero (a role he played so well) who posted a photograph of Rosemary Brown with the rallying cry (about Senator Elizabeth Warren made to shut up by the McConnel) that is barely two days old, “nevertheless she persisted”
Here is my photograph of Rosemary Brown which I took sometime in the 80s in a series for Women of Distinction.
|Sarah Rodgers & Allan Morgan|
The other photograph, one of my faves ever (a Polaroid peel scan), is of Allan Morgan and Sarah Rodgers in their roles in Angels in America.
The pathos in their faces is heart wrenching. I reused the photograph for this blog about Allan Morgan's role as Prospero in Bard on the Beach's The Tempest.
