Here I go again


A friend of mine has asked me to be the props designer for the play One Flea Spare. I read the script this weekend and I loved it and it is soooo hard to say no to working in the theater. Some days I miss my old job in Charlotte so much and need a little theater fix from time to time. So I said yes, Gerry thinks I'm crazy, there is very little pay, but I was a designer for a very long time, and some days I regret giving all of that up. I love my studio and my pottery and I like where it's going, but design work is always calling to me. Now that Wesley is in college I do have more time, so maybe I can do both. It probably is nuts to do this since I have four shows coming up in the next three months, but the prop list is short, I will be at the theater mostly at night, and I don't have to be here for Wes anymore. So why not?! Plus, I will be working with some really great people and it should be fun. So, things may get interesting, we'll see.....

WoW sounds like it should be great fun. Sometimes you just have to follow your instincts.

One thing's for certain, you've got to live to make lively work! I wonder if we will see clay stage sets emerging in your pottery! (seriously, they could be fascinating!).

I'd totally do it! It's always good to get out of the same 'ol routine and stretch our creative brains -one thing always leads to another :) Go Girl! Flex that creative muscle and besides being around cool people is food for your soul.
