Door monolouge

 I don’t know what to do.  Why can’t someone just tell me what to do!!  You sir, right there…no not you, (pointing) yes you, can you tell me what the crap I am supposed do with my life?  Where are you going?  Don’t… (Pause)  Didn’t you love it when you were younger and you didn’t have to make a signal decision all day?  From the morning when you woke up, you were diapered and your cloths were waiting for you laid out, to the night, when you were told it was bed time. Everything was decided for you.  There was no need to have keys for your doors, they were opened for you.  Who closed all my doors?  There are doors and there are doors. Some are big and some are small. Some are scary and some make you wet your pants. Either way I believe I am equipped with the keys! I will not shy away, even if my pants are wet.

I have not posted anything in a long time.  Lot’s have changed since my last post.  We have moved from New York City and now live in Rock Springs Wyoming.  Why you ask?  I took a professor job at Western Wyoming community college home of a wonderful musical theater program.  I am now getting the opportunity to teach and direct musical theater.  The transition from New York City to rock Springs was pretty good.  We miss all our friends in New York City and the wonderful opportunity that city brings.  But I am loving my new job where I can put all my theories that I've learned along the way to the test.  I promise mom and Mary Jo, I will use my website more efficiently now.  More wonderful posts to come!!!!


Oh, we also had another baby, she was born almost a year ago in August and her name is Ashley.  Caitlin is now three and Ashlee will be one in August.  Beth is doing well.  She has adjusted from being a full-time worker to a full time mom and she is good at both.

Well, back at the auditions.  I had one for a summer stock season.  It was for 5 shows, and I went in feeling good, and I sang two songs for them and made then laugh, so I feel like I did my job.  There are always so much that you can't control, so it feels good when you do the best you can, and leave it with them. 

More to come.....
