Songs to help you Endure… Part I

I’m a big music fan. I used to sing in choir, I make playlists for my characters any time I’m cast in a play, and I’ll be honest- I have a really rough time being motivated to do har things without music. So if you’re like me you’re in luck! In the next few blog posts I’m going to share some songs to help you endure… Continue reading

A Date We Put Off for Years…

My husband and I snagged another date day this past weekend! It was a much needed time after a week with very little sleep and very tense news all around. When we secured our date time my only request was that we do something that would not involve us sitting down the whole time- many of our dates have been sitting at a table or sitting in a theatre and I love those, but I wanted something a tad more active.

Cultivating Memories

As we head into the holiday season, I’ve been reflecting how best to intentionally spend my time. It feels like there’s extra pressure this year to make it special as it’s the last Christmas my son will be an only child and that makes it tempting to try and do ALL THE THINGS.

Anatomy of a Hug and Breathing through the Crazy

A quick update on a few blog posts from earlier this year. Those of you who read my post about being a female theatre artist- I am pleased to invite you posterAofaH_4x6-2to come see The Bridge Initiative’s capstone project of their symposium: Anatomy of a Hug. It runs June 19-21 and we will have the playwright in town from NYC the first two days of the run and a talkback with her the evening of the 20th. It has been a privilege and a new adventure for me to work on this production. As you may have guessed from the “bardolatry” B in this year’s resolutions‚Ķ I mostly deal with Shakespeare or other classical authors, or even once in a while an “American Classic” which is what I would consider How I Learned to Drive. I have learned a lot tackling a new piece and I feel lucky to do it with such a hard working cast and creative team. Continue reading

Baking #20: Happy Birthday Son, You’re 1!

So, of course I knew that this week’s baking project was going to have to be a cake of some sort for my sweet son’s birthday. But before we get to that, I want to talk about some of the other ways we celebrated, some of which were pretty standard, and some of which might be a little different. Continue reading
