BY LIZA STROUT - The 2012 Taste of Boca was held in a tent this year, and that’s a really good thing. Half an hour before the sun set, a double rainbow appeared over Charlotte Harbor. It was the perfect omen for an evening of good food, fun, and wonderful music.
BY MARCY SHORTUSE - There aren’t many among us who haven’t felt like Sisyphus at one time or another. The king of Greek mythology who was banished to a fate of rolling a huge boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, for eternity is a metaphor for many things.
Some say he represents the sun, which rises in the east every day and sets in the west. Others say it signifies man’s endless struggle on the earth.
Legendary artist Mariana Alzamora, whose name is well-known in Boca Grande, has recently been honored by the Victoria and Albert Museum of London for her series of etchings titled “Sisyphus Redeemed.” Recently the museum added seven of the etchings to their collection.
