  1. Anticipation

    Friday, April 19, 2019

    People, I am so anxious to hear the decisions of that audition I spoke of in the last blog entry: and I have not been able to put it out of my mind.  I don’t remember feeling like this before over a role.  Anyway, I found out that they made their decisions this past week and will be making contact with those they decided to cast this weekend.  I feel so hopeful.  It’s the timing that would be sooooo good.  I’m concerned at how disappointed I will feel if I didn’t get cast.  I usually take these things in stride because I can only control my behavior and performance.  I have no control over who else they saw that may have been more right for the part or anything else.  I just hope I don’t take it too hard if I’m not cast.  I want this!

    That pain in my foot I mentioned last blog is gone.  I’m glad about that.

    The man who planned to set fire to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and then travel 
    off to Italy was an on-line adjunct at Lehman College.  Thank goodness, he was only there for one semester.  Lehman is in my neighborhood and is where I got my BA many years ago.  I’ve also worked there and performed there.  It’s very sobering to think such a person was teaching young college students (giving grades and stuff) and was so near.  I’m more used to the more obvious kind of criminals.  I live in a loud neighborhood.  People talk to their friends about their arrests, parole, and such, and it’s not in a whisper.  The recent thing seems to be stealing electric bikes from delivery men (who barely make a living).  So far, that’s mainly happening a train stop away from me.  I don’t know which is scarier.

    The weird thing about the attempted arsonist is he got in trouble with the police in NJ recently for refusing to leave a church and he even fought with two officers.  Yet he was freely going about his business.  I don’t think that would have been the case if he were brown.  I could be wrong, but fighting with officers is usually a very bad path no matter what shade of skin one has.  So I have to say I am very glad the NYPD got him in time.   

    I was honored to spend my best friend’s birthday with him.  We mainly 
    spent it walking on trails in the part of Van Cortland Park that's in Yonkers.  We always have much to share.  So there was hours of talking.  I loved the day.  I had made him a very personalized multi-page card which captured part of his life journey and caused us much laughter.  We needed it.

    Oh people, I hope I have great news when I share again.  I need it.

    Happy 4/20 everyone.

    Love to CGG-M
