....eating up California....eating up Washington....tragedies here at home and big winds in both states keep fanning the flames. My heart breaks for the people and animals consumed in the unfathomable fires in California. My heart breaks for our country and for the world at large because of the blowhards in DC who keep fanning the flames of hatred and divisiveness and lies and corruption. I love my country but I'm so embarrassed to be an American right now. Surely the lunatics have taken over the capital. Shame on all of you. Shame.
Gee, I really hate to end on that dreary note! I had a fantastic class last night at Chicago Dramatists, getting to work with a wonderful actor to cold-read scenes in a playwriting class. What a privilege to be asked repeatedly to come back to this class session after session and revel in the amazing writing that these clever and talented playwrights bravely hand over to us to interpret and play with! I must confess, my ego really needed it last night, to hear the praise of the teacher and the playwrights....I spent weeks preparing for an audition that I had yesterday. I was so excited to finally step into the room and deliver. I'm happy with what I did. I'm frustrated that my efforts are not turning into jobs. I can't help but feel crushed and I know it's nothing personal, but dang! This flippin' business just chews you up and spits you out.....sigh....
Oh, dear, I did it again! Okay, drear no more! I hope your day is full of fulfilled dreams and wishes and that you're loved and safe and happy. Here's a hug for you today. I'm sure we could all use one.
This is a picture of a December walk in the woods last weekend. The weather was a balmy high 50-something and sunny!
