Oh, my, it feels GOOD to be HOME.
I did have a wonderful vacation, though. I spent a few days with my father and his friend, Polly, in Florida. Then I spent a few days at a storytelling festival in southern Indiana. There was no Internet access there at all. On Sunday I drove back to Indy in time to catch the 5:00 performance of “Die! Mommy, Die!” at Theatre on the Square and then the final performance of “Midwestern Hemisphere” at the ArtsGarden, as promised.
I enjoyed ALL of it.
After I get some sleep, I am going to write reviews of three storytelling pieces, reviews of the two theatre pieces, and maybe a reflection on some of the similarities and differences between live theatre and oral tradition storytellng. I thought about that topic a lot this past week. I also want to write a review of the storytelling CD that I listened to in the car on the way to the storytelling festival.
Whew! I have my work cut out for me. But as Anais Nin says, “We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection.”
