MORE ABOUT ME
Most gratified and floored to watch/hear a my playwriting (at risk) students preform their own plays. Getting Out by Marsha Norman shot a catharsis thru me I'll never forget. I think and hope I'm always myself, other wise who am I? I give most disappointments 24 hrs. I hope artistic directors/literary managers cast aside all aspects of ageism. I'm pretty darn shy, don't like being spotlighted. I read and watch old movies, observe wild winter birds feeding, long for two new kittens. Theatre is my life, sigh. I try to tell true stories wrapped up in imagination.
