(1) They gave me a night off last night, which really helped. I was first asleep at 7:30, awoke at 10pm, then slept from midnight till 6:30 in the morning. Ran 2 1/2 miles at 8am, barely beating the heat. Thankful for good rest, good exercise, and good spirits.
(2) I’ve discovered a great thrift store in the area. It’s a lot closer than Goodwill and much better stocked. It’s the Hope Center. I got nice pants, T-shirt, and button-down long sleeve for only $21 the other day. Eager to go there when I have a paycheck and time on my hands, and procure a variety of appealing garments, at last.
(3) The D below Middle C has been fixed on the Baldwin Grand, so I’ll be able to head over to the church and record a piano piece pretty soon. (Will aim to post it tomorrow morning.)
(4) Tracy adjusted my byline for the publication in Spokane to include the information that Eden in Babylon has been sold to RTOP. My About Page has also been duly adjusted. But mostly I am relieved and grateful to have finally encountered professional musical theatre people who recognize me as a professional musical theatre person. Thankful for the RTOP Theatre.
(5) Looks like I’m all set up in an air-conditioned cafe to start working on my columns. Looking forward to a gentle day preceding an exhilarating sing-thru of all songs with dance and movement, marking the halfway point of our four week rehearsal for The Sound of Music. Things certainly could be–and have been–a lot worse.
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
A little goes a long, long way.
