This post comes from a dear friend, Allen Bernard, who thought Mary Anthony should be honored especially by Cincinnatians and Northern Kentuckians.
And, I’ll be darned, Mary Price Boday! You never told us you were a writer, a biographer of A Dancer’s Journey. Is it published yet? Please let us all know. I will put a link for your writing as I did with Stuart Hodes’ memoir among others (Richard Holden’s story is available to read for free online)
I did not encounter Mary Anthony in this lifetime, yet I surely honor her gifts of expression. That final line in A. Kisselgoff’s writing resonates powerfully with me: “Find a verse of poetry and become it.”
Thank you, Mary
Lobsang Pamo is her name
Eating haters is her game
She works only for Peace amongst all
Appears to others as weak and small
Hope none of you have to deal with this. I’m sure Helen Heineman has.

Researchers including England’s former chief medical officer Professor Liam Donaldson identified 62 cases of a rare reaction called bone cement implantation syndrome (BCIS) occurring between 2005 and 2012.
The cement is used to hold artificial joints in place. It is widely used in the UK, and while it has reported long-term benefits for the patient, is not essential for a successful operation and its use is less common in some other countries.
BCIS occurs when the cement disrupts circulation in the hip joint, causing blood pressure to drop, potentially stopping the…

When the elegant Ivan Nagy came to Cincinnati to direct The Cincinnati Ballet, I had the opportunity to speak with him for nearly 2 hours. Conditions in the company were fairly rough, as in most professional dance companies. The following article appeared in the short-lived Cincinnati Arts. I’ve included the cover and the editorial masthead at the time . . . of course to serve as attributions to its first publication in magazine form c.1989.
