FOLLOW THE LIGHTS I spent this past winter working as a northern-lights guide in Bettles, Alaska (population: twelve), and I agree with James Lasdun that photos of the phenomenon are generally far more impressive than what is visible to the naked eye (“Glow,” April 29th). However, the lights occasionally dance so rapidly that their beauty is nearly impossible to capture in a photograph. Whenever I was out with guests and a corona formed above our heads, it felt like sitting under a lampshade of falling light. People would shriek and burst into tears. I would, too. But on L.C.D. screens these displays often appeared only as over-exposed lime-green smudges. After four months in the Arctic, I realized that, when your jaw drops, it’s better to drop your camera as well. Mary Ellen…

goings on about town: this week

The majestic beauty of a harp evokes a visual and sonic mysticism that makes it at once inviting and intimidating. With Brandee Younger at the helm, the instrument gains a bit of soul, as she tends to the legacies of such harpists as Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane while breathing fresh life into its repertoire with her own compositions. Her radiant playing is as cogent on hip-hop and R. & B. albums as it is set against classical and jazz backdrops. On Blue Note’s stage, May 21-22, she’ll manifest her own starry vision of the harp’s potential. DANCE New York City Ballet David H. Koch George Balanchine the modernist faces off with Balanchine the classicist on alternating programs. “Symphony in Three Movements” exemplifies the angular energy and spare lines of the choreographer’s Stravinsky ballets.…

tables for two: lhasa fresh food

Before Lhasa Fresh Food, which opened last year, there was Lhasa Fast Food, one of the worst-kept chowhound secrets in Queens, often described as being “in the back of a cell-phone store in Jackson Heights.” (Actually, it’s one of several businesses in a small arcade, including not only a cell-phone store but also a money-transfer counter, a jeweller, and a tailor.) Whether or not you stumble upon the restaurant organically, a visit offers something of an illicit thrill. Walk through a narrow, fluorescent-lit hallway, past window displays of handheld devices and accessories, and suddenly you’re in a tiny, brightly painted oasis, eating—under the watchful eye of the Dalai Lama—from a limited menu of delicious Himalayan food: steamed momos, a type of dumpling similar to a Chinese bao, plus a handful…

comment: last chances

2019 occurred on New Year’s Day, with the death of a Hawaiian tree snail named George. George, who was about an inch long, had a grayish body, grayish tentacles, and a conical shell striped in beige and brown. He was born in captivity, in Honolulu, and had spent his unassuming life oozing around his terrarium, consuming fungi. Researchers with Hawaii’s forestry department had tried to find a partner for him—George was a hermaphrodite, but he needed a mate in order to reproduce—and when they couldn’t they concluded that he was the last of his kind, Achatinella apexfulva. A few days after he went, presumably gently, into that good night, the department posted a eulogy under the heading “farewell to a beloved snail … and a species.” “Unfortunately, he is survived…

on campus: reconciliation

Mélisande Short-Colomb knows her begats. Three years ago, she received a Facebook message from a genealogist, asking if she was related to the Mahoney family of Baton Rouge. Like a Biblical scholar ticking off Old Testament lineage, she typed out a list of her forebears—enslaved and free—going back seven generations. The genealogist had struck gold. For months, she’d been searching for descendants of the roughly three hundred slaves who had been sold by the Maryland Jesuits who owned Georgetown College, in 1838, for a hundred and fifteen thousand dollars, to save the school from bankruptcy. With the help of Short-Colomb and her begats, more than eight thousand descendants of these slaves were located. Now Georgetown University is trying to make it up to them. Last month, the student body voted…
