My week in Maine is almost at an end. Please don’t ask me how my vacation was. I spent every day working either in performances of Muse of Fire or trying to consolidate two storage units into one.
I report that both of these endevors were successful. But building and striking sets, loading sets in and out and then moving boxes and furniture back and forth has me feeling kind of tired.
The week was not without a little fun though. I was hosted during my stay by good friends who provided good conversation and tasty meals in addition to a comfy bed. I visited with folks I hadn’t seen in months. There was the obligatory visit to Schoodic Point, part of Acadia National Park-my favorite place in the world. And of course, Lobster Rolls.
The performances of Muse of Fire are a highlight of my year. The audience members once again rose to their feet in a spontaneous Standing O. That is always gratifying as this is not only a tremendous piece of theater but also an effort of the heart.
The most beautiful day was, of course, the day I had to spend indoors. Warm and sunny with a searingly blue sky. The clouds must have felt sorry for me. Take a look at this sad cloud face.
The rest of the week was cloudy with sunny breaks, as they would say back in Seattle. But I did not mind at all.The cool damp air felt really soothing to me. And I love the dark nights with bright stars and the quiet.
Tomorrow packing and sorting the things I want to bring back with me.
