Mortality is such a downer. No wonder many of us are a perpetual state of denial about death — the approach taken by a young woman given nine months to live at the start of "Linus and Alora," the recent Andrew Irons play at Single Carrot Theatre . The woman, Alora, takes it one step further than denial, actually — all the way into fantasy land. Gradually, and sometimes painfully, husband Linus agrees to join her there, confronting some tough issues of his own in the process.

Grumbles and sighs of exasperation were heard coming from the group of third-grade boys huddled around the square piece of pirate-printed fleece. Comments such as "I can't do this" and "This is hard" punctuated the boys' struggles to tie knots in the fabric's fringes. "I'm getting an awful lot of 'can'ts' from you boys," said Kerry Wolf, a parent volunteer at the table. "I think you can. It's like tying a balloon. We're having a water balloon battle and don't even know it. " The boys, along with their fellow students at Runnymede Elementary School, were taking part in the school's fourth annual Project Linus project Dec. 19. A nonprofit organization founded in 1998, Project Linus provides blankets for security, warmth and comfort to children who are ill, traumatized or in need, according to Connie Richman, coordinator for Project Linus in Carroll County.

It's possible to summarize Andrew Irons' "Linus and Alora" as being about a man and woman anticipating the birth of a child, but its meaning is more difficult to pin down. That makes it a suitable choice for Single Carrot Theatre, because this group in Baltimore's Station North arts district thrives on such avant-garde work. When Alora (Susannah Edwards) visits a doctor at the beginning of the play, it's immediately clear from their conversation that the playwright is going to raise as many questions as he answers when it comes to Alora's back story and medical condition.

Critic's Pick -- Linus waits in the pumpkin patch for the elusive Halloween symbol in It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (8 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2)

By John O'Ren | April 3, 2000
GENERAL MANAGER Schulz won't be present this opening day, but the Charlie Brown All-Stars are just as ready as they ever are. Linus Van Pelt at second, Snoopy at short, Lucy Van Pelt lolling in center, her other brother Rerun sucking on his milk bottle in left, Schroeder crouched behind the plate. See them tense up as, on the mound, Charlie rears back to fling the first pitch of the new season. And now the enemy's leadoff man hits it high and far enough to reach the warehouse, on the fly. Wait.

The whimsical cartoon work of Charles M. Schulz has always had a deeply philosophic side, which is perhaps best displayed tonight in the seasonal rerun "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" at 8:30 p.m. on Channel 11.The story may involve all the Halloween traditions, but the issue is really the difficult challenge of faith, as practiced by both Charlie and his friend, Linus.Do you remember? The former manages to retain his hope for treats, although consistently getting a rock, while the latter sticks to his belief in a myth that is given no credence by others.

Almost every evening after dinner, Jean Matson settles into a recliner, pulls yarn and a needle out of her sewing basket and crochets until bedtime. The 71-year-old Forest Hill resident learned the craft as a child and spent years making blankets and afghans for family and friends. Eventually, Matson ran out of people to give them to, so she began making items for her home. Soon the house was awash in rugs, throws and afghans. "I literally had pieces all over the house," Matson said. "I couldn't put more in here if I wanted to."

Alex Pace walked the halls of a local nursing home, stopping at the patients' rooms to visit. During brief conversations she learned many of them were without families or visitors. "It made me feel good to be at the elder home," said the 13-year-old, an eighth-grader. "I wanted to make them smile and feel better. I'm close to my grandparents, and I got to help the elder people without grandchildren see what it would be like to have a granddaughter." Alex's visit was a small part of the extensive community service program offered at Harford Day School, which she attends.

I've been a ''Peanuts'' fan for years. I've literally grown up with the ''Peanuts'' specials. ''It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown'' and ''A Charlie Brown Christmas'' are as traditional in my house as pumpkins and Christmas trees.But I have a question.Why haven't there been any ''Peanuts'' for the Jewish holidays?There have been ''Peanuts'' specials for almost every holiday including Arbor Day, and that special was created prior to the recent flourishing of the environmental movement. ''Peanuts'' specials have always been educational, whether the message is subtle, such as standing up for your beliefs as Linus did in ''The Great Pumpkin,'' or overt, such as the ''Why, Charlie Brown, Why?

Writer-director Robert Rodriguez's The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D, presented as "A Rodriguez Family Movie Based on the Stories and Dreams of Racer Max" (his 7-year-old son), is as sweet and hopeless and silly as a doting dad framing his second-grader's latest finger-painting and calling it a Matisse. A tale of a boy fantasist who discovers his imaginary superhero friends are real, it is no more amusing or compelling than a visit to a distant cousin's rumpus room. Rodriguez showed a gift for rough-and-ready, quick-witted family fare in his first Spy Kids movie; it wrought more funny twists on the "family that slays together, stays together" formula than today's semi-adult opening, Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
