Jim is eating blackberries for breakfast. YUMMMM.
The weather this week-end was glorious. Sunny and warm. A perfect end of summer. Today has the feel of a school day - you know, cool, a bit gray. The weather says "pool closed, pull on a sweater and get down to work."
And that's what I have to do. Two weeks until the Appalachian Festival in Frostburg and next day I am telling my ERA story in Hagerstown. I used the time and the quiet in Biglerville to step back into that story. I have a recording from the February performance and I have listened to it
a number of times to remind me of the sequencing I used then. This week I begin tweaking - polishing - practicing. Along with practicing the stories for the Appalachian Festival and a few run-throughs of the story for Jonesborough.
Next week I keep these balls in the air and add the programs for October - Cross-Currents with Noa Baum and Linda Fang and my annual solo Halloween program. Its what storytellers do - learn, practice and tell stories. Its work and its wonderful FUN.
Don't forget Traveling Oma's School of Writing. She keeps adding the most intriguing and challening prompts and assignments.
Checking the library for one of Riley Adam's mysteries. I have met her on her blog; I look forward to meeting her through her work.
Having a video meeting with Robin this week. I know we will work but mostly I want to chat.
Looking forward to the new season of NCIS which starts Sept 22 and the Ken Burn docmentary The National Parks on PBS later this month.
