Wiser men than me once said…

Let us trust God and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.

American Lawyer, politician, and first Governor of Virginia, Patrick Henry, was born on this day in 1736 (died 1799).

I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.

English-American actor, singer, and producer, Bob Hope, was born on this day in 1903 (died 2003)

Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.

35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, was born on this day in 1917 (died 1963)

It’s Wednesday. Somehow weeks seem to drag on longer when they’re abbreviated. I know they really don’t. It’s just a feeling.

I’m itching to get out there and do some summer-y stuff.

It’s my favorite season after all.

I’m trying to balance out my desire to go do said summer-y stuff with the fact that I still have a lot to do around the house. As I noted yesterday, I’ve made progress. But there’s more to be done.

And then there’s the writing, and the art. I just finished up the 100 Day Project and I’m glad it’s over. I’m not sure I’ll do it again next year. You can see my posts/drawings on Instagram.

It’s all about balance, and making choices. It’s about determining what is a priority, what can be delayed, and what can be shown the door.

I’m gonna need a bigger door.

Like the one Rose had. You know there was room for Jack.

My posts will go on.

We Need to Talk about Fat Men in Theatre
On Stage Blog
by Tom Heald, Guest Columnist
When was the last time you went to the theatre and saw a fat man on stage? What about a fat man playing the lead? Were they, what you would call a traditional lead? Why is this? Bigger female and NB bodies do appear in theatre. For example, the recent production of ‘Legally Blonde’ produced by The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in London. This production completely reinvented the traditional aesthetic of the show.
