Friends are Good for You

So…I have not been posting much. It is not that I have nothing going on…it’s that I have too much going on. I have been totally drained, physically and creatively, as I am putting it all into the production. Dress rehearsal in on the 20th, one week away, and the performances are on the 25th and 26th. That means costumes, props, and set all have to be finished now. Then there are tickets to sell, programs to design, promos, and a seemingly ends list of small details.

But last night Michael insisted I take the evening off, dress in my best “glad rags,” and go out for dinner and a dance concert. It was a much needed break and creatively renewing. And it was a reminder that friends are good for you.

He is off to the Gulf Wars XIX today for eight days of camping and medieval weaponry and arts.

(Gulf Wars is the annual contest between the Kingdom of Ansteorra, and the Kingdom of Trimaris. The war is hosted by the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann and the Kingdom of Meridies ; all of which are member groups of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our "Known World" consists of 19 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. The link is: )

I, however, am back to it today. I am going in shortly to continue my own production battle of RADIUM GIRLS.

The wars sound fun(?) well they do I guess as no one will get hurt this time round. Use to go and watch things like that at our local castle at home, :-( homesick moment!!!!!
