Vineyard Haven Library has a new program I wish I could do. Yoga With Kat or Chair Yoga for Arthritis begins Monday, September 12 from 11 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. for six weeks, on the lower level.

Yoga With Kat continues sessions of Chair Yoga, one of the gentlest forms of yoga. This class is perfect if you are recovering from injury or illness, a way for anyone to experience the benefits of yoga without having to get off the ground. This will focus on yoga for people seeking relief from arthritis. Register for one or all six sessions. No registration or registration.

Don’t forget the 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Vineyard Haven Library on Sunday September 25th. Registration forms are at the library. Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome.
My air conditioner has been running since early June, but has just been fixed, so I can now turn it off, although I don’t want to.
Be sure to put the date of the special municipal meeting on your calendar now. Tuesday, September 20 is your chance to make sure we fix Tisbury School. It’s our fault that the cost has gone up, but it needs to be done right, and now.

The new play at Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse is a winner, by all reports. “Burning Patience” opened last weekend. The play takes place in Chile. It’s a love story, with politics getting things done. Director, Olga Sanchez, began her professional acting career at the Playhouse, performing in ‘Cabaret’, ‘The Three Sisters’ and with the Afterwords sketch set. She is Director of New Works at the Chautauqua Theater and Assistant Professor of Drama at Middlebury College.

The show stars Lawrence Redmond, a Cuban-American actor, and Bella Campos, who is a future senior at Carnegie Mellon University studying musical theater. There’s a full cast that proudly shares Latino ancestry. The play runs until September 17 from Wednesday to Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available online at mvplayhouse.org. Discounted tickets are available for Island residents on Wednesdays and Fridays. Cash-only peak tickets after 7 p.m. every night.

I think I told you I had to wait for Xfinity to fix my TV. Then they messaged to say they had “fixed the issue affecting Xfinity Video” in my area. Then they added that if you are online again, you can reply to cancel your appointment.

But I was still online. It has never been a problem. So I plan to wait and see what happens next. I wish I could just tell them I think I need a new Xfinity box because that seems to be the problem. It ran briefly, but then shut off again and made weird buzzing noises. I can hardly wait.

Big bunches of birthday balloons are being sent to Edwin Gould-Hart tomorrow. Happy birthday to Melissa Gold on Monday. Best wishes to Mike Ciancio on Tuesday.

Heard on Main Street: Don’t forget school will be open soon. Watch for toddlers who are too excited to look both ways. Do you remember those days?
