Posting has been light of late. I am neglecting my blog, a good sign that the rest of my life is clicking along at full speed. I'm deep into rehearsals for Oliver Twist and The Pickwick Papers in the Riverside Dickens Festival. I play Mr. Brownlow in the first show and Mr. Wardle in the second show. I've also been cast as the First Gravedigger in Hamlet, a fun role.
I'm working with some other actors toward starting a theatre company that will emphasize classical drama and give me a place I can develop my own plays. I have a list of plays I would like to produce by authors such as Ibsen, Schiller, Hugo, Corneille and others. I'm always reading plays, looking for something great to add to my list.
My Dean guitar came in the mail. It's really nice. You can buy a good guitar cheap these days. It's not a top-notch guitar like a Les Paul or an American Stratocaster, but it gets the job done just fine.
And I'm writing and working full time. I turned 51 last week.
I'm looking forward to the Florida Primary. I support Rudy Giuliani because he is a social liberal, the farthest Republican candidate from the religious right. Also he supports war against militant Islam and seems to be for less government, although such talk means little from either party these days.
You know, when I started this blog I did it for free. With cost of living increases to cover inflation, Blogger should be paying me by now, don't you think? ;)
