I read a blog yesterday that really struck a chord in me. It discussed that we need to remember to say thank you to those who protect us every day. She is right. We have all been debating gun laws, the violence we hear about much too often, politics, and the lack of empathy from … Continue reading A Sincere Thank You
There's a parable of the flood waters which I will share: A man was trapped in his house during a flood. He began praying to God to rescue him. He had a vision in his head of God’s hand reaching down from heaven and lifting him to safety. The water started to rise in his … Continue reading When Tossed a Life Preserver
As I sit here, I ask the question - community theater, why do it? Those of us involved with community theater know how much work it takes to keep one going, and we're not even getting paid! So why do we do this to ourselves??? Because we love it. As an actor, it is a … Continue reading Community Theater – Why Do It?
Welcome to the hamster wheel. This is the best alliteration of what my life is like right now. Well maybe not the best as I do get off of the proverbial wheel, eventually. But it does paint a picture. Currently, my life consists of work and theatre, with some household stuff thrown in for good … Continue reading The Hamster Wheel
This past week sleep has been fleeting for me. I have felt super exhausted. My new Fitbit shed some light onto the issue. I was barely sleeping. Last night I went to bed around 8 pm and took two melatonin instead of my regular dose of one. I got a little over 8 hours of … Continue reading Sleep

Two things that pressed my proverbial buttons. 1) People spouting how wonderful our President is - explicitly saying how he is God's servant. 2) People claiming that it's because people aren't going to church, allowing God in school, etc. that … Continue reading What the…?!?
Last night we had the read-thru of Full Frontal Nudity. We barely could get through a scene without loads of laughter. This show is even more hysterical when you add in the actors! There are some logistical challenges to staging this show at our theater. Let me explain. Our theater is housed in what used to … Continue reading Looks Like It Will Be a Hit!
Yesterday I promised to share the results of Reedy Point Players' 2018 One Act Festival. I had planned to blog about it last night, after the cast party/awards ceremony but, honestly, I was simply too tired to write a blog. It has been a crazy whirlwind weekend as most show weekends. Luckily, my office is … Continue reading And the Award Goes to…
The night started for us around 4:30 pm - sleet had begun to fall as we made our way to the theater. By the time we arrived huge flakes of snow were coming down fast and furiously. As we prepared for the final night of the festival, we watched the snow continue to fall and … Continue reading About Last Night…
I'm sure a number of you are surprised that I have not blogged about the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. To be honest, I have been posting a lot on social media about it and I have found that those who have similar political thoughts are in agreement with my stance. Of course, those with … Continue reading Oh What A Night!
