  1. Looking Forward

    Tuesday, June 25, 2013


    I have some things to look forward to, so I decided to look forward today instead of backward or sideways or too far inside though there are lots of things in those directions that need expressing.

    My jobs are simmering down for the summer which is good and bad.  The good part is I get to do other things.  On Monday, July 15th at 8pm, I will be co-featuring with Mindy Levokove for the Saturn Series poetry reading (in its 19th year!) at Revival Bar on E.15th Street off of Irving Place, NYC.  This series is curated and hosted by Su Polo, a woman with a lot of stamina.  She is also a fine artist and a music maker. 
    This is she.


    The open mic portion, which takes place before and after the featured readers, welcomes all kinds of spoken word – poetry, comedy, prose, drama – and music.  They request a $3 donation (or more if you can) and a drink.  I hope some of you New York City people will feel inspired to come out and even share something of your own.  Su is a warm and caring host.  The reading series is weekly, but July 15, 2013 is the one I call “The Night of Two Mindys.”

    Mindy Levekove is full of surprises, so I don’t know anything about her performance until I’m seeing it.

    Rehearsals begin July 1st for the short play in which I’m happy to be cast.  That is a week away and I have to have my lines memorized, which should be do-able.  I am so very curious who is cast to play my character’s ex-husband.  In the play, I have to kiss him.  Lord, Lord, Lord.  That is one of those things that could be lovely or yuck.  This may sound weird to some, but I’d find it easier to have him touch me almost anywhere than to kiss.  Kissing is more personal.

    For those of you interested in attending the play, "When We Met" will be one of several short plays in the Unboxed Voices 2nd Annual Summer Short Play Festival.


    The shows will be:                           

    Saturday, July 27, 2013 at 7:30pm & Sunday, July 28, 2013 at 2:00 at the Kraine Theatre, 85 East 4th St (between 2nd Ave and Bowery).  Mark your calendars, and I will continue to share details as I get them.  In the meantime, let’s visualize a decent person to play my character’s ex; healthy, handsome, and heterosexual would be good too.

      I'll definitely try to hobble in with my summer ortho-boot (if my kids have enough $ in their piggy banks for me to swipe for tolls) ~S
