I’m still doing a little bit of clean up as I sort through all of the paperwork and receipts and lists that I brought back from Hartford. I must say it’s very nice to be back at my desk here in the studio/office – a space, by the way, that is getting cozier by the minute. I really love it up here.
My body is still on theater time, so I’m not getting as rested as I’d like. It takes me a couple of hours to get to sleep and then I wake up early – when Don wakes up. But that will all even out in a few days. Harder to deal with – but also inevitable when you freelance – is waking up and realizing there is no job to go to. Transitions are a part of this life and I have to remind myself to be patient as I navigate re-entrance to my life in the country.
I start work on Anastasia, the Broadway edition, in a few weeks. I’m still waiting for a contract, but that should be taken care of this week. After that, I start work on Heartbreak House by Shaw, back at Hartford Stage. It’s a blessing, having work for the first 5 months of the year. Believe me, that’s a rarity. And Don leaves at the end of March or beginning of April for LaJolla to start work on Escape to Margaritaville. The Hill-Sparks household is gainfully employed for the first half of 2017.
So many of my friends and family and readers marched on Saturday. I am so proud of all of you! I think we’ll be talking about this march for a long time; the power of the people, the rebuke to that man’s agenda, the peaceful and non-violent assembly of millions all over the globe. Our voice is stronger than ever and now we have to keep that momentum going.
I am particularly proud of this activist:
There he is. Handsome devil, don’t you think?
One of his pictures from Saturday. A sea of pink hats, men, women, children with the dome of the Capitol in the distance. Oh, these photos inspire me! We looked through all of them last night.
My sister is making me a Pussy Hat. Because you know I’ll be marching somewhere soon.
I’m trying to persuade a certain someone to do a guest post. What do you think? Shall we band together and talk him into it?
