Happy Monday! We press on, and explore some arty links, as per usual.

Dance/theater: Today I learned there are ballet dramaturgs, which sounds like an excellent occupation (as does nearly everything dramaturgy-related).

Language: There are hundreds of different words for a hundred different kind of winds. (I read a book last week that talked about the tramontana, oddly enough.) 

Art/History #1: Vegas motels are their own form of art. 

Art/History #2: You may have seen images of the brutalist-like concrete spomenik monuments, but not known the context of their creation in what was Yugoslavia. 

History/Culture: What does it look like when a civilization collapses? Each one is different, and ours is…not looking too promising.
