Gori: A School Performance

Sandy invited me to her school in Gori last week.

We watched one of those end-of-year school recitals that has surely been going on for hundreds of years.

Earnest singing with enthusiastic piano pounding. Proud parents. Women fanning themselves. A directress standing up periodically, turning around to face the audience, extending her arm, and hissing the Georgian version of a shhhhhhhhh!

In the American South, one would add "bless their hearts" at the end, with a stretchy warm tone.
