Crazy Girl Smiles at Trees

A red house finch sat in a small tree and sang out.
I heard him and saw him just in time.
We looked at each other and for a while we just stared.

"Hi Dad." I said as he hopped down the branch.
He cocked his head to one side to look at me.

"I miss you," I said smiling to him waiting to hear his song again.

The bird hopped down the tree branch and didn't sing again while I waited.
I smiled and hoped someone would come by so I could share this moment with them.

No one came.

"Daddy, I have no one to share with."

This morning I heard a red finch sing.

Kylie Gave Me Flowers

New Works Festival is OVER! It's been part of my life since last December and I'm glad it's done. So nice to have the props put back in the closets. HOORAY!

My show was pretty successful and I'm happy with what I learned from it. Kylie brought me flowers--she remembered that my favorites are purple and yellow irises! She did have to look at a couple of stores to find them, though.

Now, my new adventure is actually being in a play. I play Jane, the disgruntled maid, a stranded motorist, and a nun. I haven't been in a play since the one I wrote in 5th it's a bit nerve bending. I don't have my evenings to myself yet. But I do have a new adventure.

The play is called "Bloody Murder" and is brand new! Never been performed. It's a comedy based around the characters of a murder mystery. It's showing on May 1, 2, & 3. I'd love it if you could come!!
