I haven't written anything in a long time; life has been just a teensy bit crazy. So I'm going to try to be more diligent in the next few days, and say a few things I've been turning over in my head.

Today, I want to write about the Theatre At First Third One Act Play festival, "Surprise Kisses." I had a blast. I loved working with my director and co-actor, I loved the play I was working on, I loved all the other plays and I was delighted with the performances. I felt really proud of the work we all accomplished, and I was delighted when some old friends showed up for the play. From its inception, I have been impressed with the quality that TheatreAtFirst achieves, and with the delightful people who come to act and move furniture and hang lights and on and on. This was another case where everything, from my perspective, went very well indeed. I won't try to compose a comprehensive thank-you to all the people who worked so hard to make this play happen, because I'm certain to leave someone out; so let me say simply that I am so grateful to be part of this group, and so grateful to have met so many wonderful people. There were times in the last couple months when T@F was about the only thing in my life that I felt happy about. Thank you, everyone. Let's do it again, real soon.

I admit that I really wanted to play the artist in Brushstroke, but [livejournal.com profile] eclecticavatar was so good, I can only congratulate her. And as for my rôle, at first I thought "Not another old man!" but I came to love him. I loved the fact that he could be in one moment in charge of things, and in another moment vulnerable and confused—just like real life.

Well, he's off to Chicago now with a nice woman he met in the sports bar, and I'm starting to read about the Transcendentalists.
