Sorry, I know the word is “guidance”

Hodge and Podge

April 9th, 2011

Last night we opened to a small but very enthusiastic audience. I actually remembered the majority of my lines and added a little in fun. The director is happy -just wrote in her notes- Sing out! In memory of Rosalind Russell from Gypsy , I add “Louise”.
I was reluctant to take the role since I had more or less decided that I was finished in light of current circumstances. Also, some of the language my character sang in the script was questionable to say the least. But I was lucky to have a very understanding director who was supportive of my changing the words in order to make it still “naughty” but less offensive.
It has been a good diversion with a new young cast that initially made me feel a hundred years old.
Hopefully, those in the area can see the show- especially my children(hint,hint)!
Now to update- I have signed a letter effective to my retire/resignation . The good news is that it will be not be in effect until June 2012. Therefore, I still have one more year to make it 33. How the years have flown!
It has been a true roller coaster this week, but the ride has come to a temporary stop and after tears,anger and yes, laughter- life still goes on.
I am now more at liberty to talk about it , so those who have been holding back questions,please ask now.
As always, thank you to the true friends that have surrounded me in silence.
Mom and Dad – this is one time I have really missed your quidance – I hope you are still proud of me.
Until next time…..carpe diem.
