Or so the saying goes about New York. I bring it up for a reason!
The same actress that I am writing the Pearl Bailey play for (or “for whom I am writing the Pearl Bailey play”) has hired me to do some extensive editing on another play that she is involved in — another one-woman musical. And part of the arrangement is that she will need me to attend rehearsals in New York City no less than three times between now and a nano-second from now!
Well, now until “the end of September,” which feels like a nano-second because I am still in school full-time, still working various part-time jobs, working at the church now, too, and beginning that two-month course on pastoral care for the terminally ill and the bereaved, etc., on Monday.
Oh, yeah, and revising the TV pilot — I’m kind of, sort of hoping I can get most of that done this week and next. I plan to accomplish that by way of a process that’s called: believing in miracles!!!
Anyway, I am so excited. My airfare and hotel bills are paid for. So I just sort of show up and help them make magic, then fly back home. I can’t imagine anything I will enjoy more. (Oh, perhaps the opportunity to see that guy I was in love with light years ago because he lives in the vicinity…)
Life just gets better and better and better, gang. It makes me want to regale you with — tah dah!! — a photo of a cat!! Oh —here’s one!!
Skipperdee was one of only two kittens who actually got adopted last summer. He was just a born “people cat” from day one. Luckily he was adopted by a friend here in town so I still get to visit him. He is such a wonderful cat!
He was named after one of the characters in the Eloise books, btw. Here he is under my friend’s coffee table a few weeks ago.
