Crystal Clear


Picture taken today from my deck, moments before a speedboat broke the sound barrier.

And these things I swear to be true:
We have to be open.
We have to be available.
We have to put it out there.
We have to suit up and show up.
We do not have 200 years to live.
We must make every moment count (see above).

I've talked about my dream book, here and here for those interested.

Well, another dream began today. At noon.

I am writing, directing and producing a play which will open in the spring and tour for the summer, with rehearsals all winter.

I will hold auditions over the next weeks and start rehearsals November 1.

Excited?

Beyond.

  3. I hate speedboats, they totally destroy any calm, tranquil view by screaming past, saying "Look at me, look at me". The play sounds exciting, what's it about exactly?

  4. I would say for certain that you are suiting and showing up. How exciting and what a role model you are for the rest of us. I can't wait to follow this journey with you.

  5. That is exciting! I'm already looking forward to hearing more about the development of your play. In the meantime, best of luck with the preparations and auditions.

    Beautiful sky, by the way.

  7. That is wonderful about the play. I wrote and produced five full length musicals for children with a great group of people. It is exhausting but a fantastic experience.
    The stories are still on my old website www.greenginger.com

    Go for it!

    I don't view myself as being especially talented, no. Life is a learning curve and a journey.

    Yes, moments can be destroyed in a blink so we need to cherish the preblink!
    The play is about an old fisherman and deals with senior abuse. More later.

    I wrote to him telling him a story of my childhood which was close to his experience as a lad and he wrote back. I never expected it. What a lovely man.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
