I love buying things in bulk. Sifting through various types of beans or dried fruit or toys or candy or jewelry or whatever, it’s satisfying, somehow, to create a combination of just about anything that is unique to a mood, a particular need, or the tastes of the recipient. Creating a work of art with multiple textures, images or stories is similar, and that is what presenters strive for: a mix of elements that is just right for the audience they strive to delight.
Several of the events this week show that level of care in their crafting, whether it’s a benefit concert for Ukraine, a Mother’s Day celebration, or a season finale. Bravo to the programmers who work so hard to create memories that will stay with us long after the event. Hopefully you’ll find your perfect mix this week.
