Weirdest weekend, I feel like I’m straddling 1976 and 2006, half my mind in each decade.  I interviewed the cast and Director of Cinderella yesterday, they’re singing “The Prince is Having a Ball!” and I’m hearing “With Your Love”.  Remember that old song by Jefferson Starship?  I liked them as Jefferson Airplane too, sell outs.  Normally when I’m troubled or fussing about anything, I write it out.  But the story won’t get on the paper (or the screen).  It is incomprehensible to me that a thirty year old romance could still be impacting my life today.  Its difficult to write what you don’t understand.  I’d have better luck with rocket science. 

Anyway, I attended their dress rehearsal, took a bunch of pictures, finished up my notes and strolled out the door with the intention of dropping in on the grandgirls until my rehearsal later that night.  Then I remembered I’d forgotten my music.  So I had to drive the forty miles back home to get it and then back to the theater.  I hate when I do that.  I need to pin notes to my shirt now days “don’t forget the camera”, “are you wearing shoes?”, “Wait!  Have you brushed your hair today?”  Next week they cast the skits.  I’m sure I’ll be assigned something smashing like:  char woman in the window.  In the mean time, I’ve found a way to contribute to the chorus without lip synching.  I just start out with the altos for a bar or two, then shift over to tenor for a measure and wrap everything up in bass!  It’s working for me. 

Election day tomorrow, I hope everyone has plans to vote.  Tuesday is also grant us peace day.

    It is not that your memory is going, it is that you have way more things to remember.

    We were always about half way to Green bay when I would say did you pack the camera? The answer was always O! No!.

    Notes pinned to shirts Dr. John, I’m positive that’s the key to life!

    I’ve learned that there are chunks of my day when I’m on autopilot (getting ready for work in the morning, for example). I do fine as long as I operate within that familiar zone, but let one little thing happen to disrupt my sequence, and I’ll forget to turn out the light, lock the door, something or other. I thought it was an age thing until I opened the cabinet the other day and found the jug of milk my daughter had left in there next to the glasses.

    I like Vanessa’s thought. Let’s just go with that, okay?

    oh, yeah, kat – i know about the need to pin notes to your shirt! i’ve finally accepted that if i don’t write it down – it’s gone forever. i have notes for everything now. the trick was learning to always keep the same ones in the same place so i’d know which one to take with me where. (hope you followed that!) darn, life is complicated. LOL

    I am just like you, I go out and forget whatever I needed. What I have been doing for a while now is..when I am going to work ( which isnt often) I put everything in a bag that I want with me at work, or I set it on my coat! I have even gone so far as to set stuff in front of the door !!! But you know what Katt? It works!!!! lol

    You certainly have a full and interesting life Kat, no one could ever say you are a wallflower lol No wonder your memory puts some tiny things on hold. Very impressed with your vocal range too. :p Hope you get a good part.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
