This picture- wow. I had some great students at Flagler- I learned more by teaching it than by doing it. (The sneakers had been green but I bleached them to a banana yellow)

Favorite: the one where Ben talks Locke out of hanging himself and then kills him. Hardest: the one where Ben wakes up in the desert and has to ride a horse.

I wanted to be an actor when I was 15. It was not my full-time job until I was 43. Many sidetracks and many side jobs along the way, but I was pretty sure It was my calling

If I understand you correctly here I would say “They beat you to it. Watch out.”

Speaking of bluegrass mode- and a heavenly band do a version of Billy Joel’s “Travelin’ Prayer” that is a knockout

Listening to and they played “Jolene” by - such a great song! Did a little search and found a stunning cover of it by Rhonda Vincent in a bluegrass mode. (Im sure everyone knows it but me!) She attacks the song with a passion and the picking is very fine

Carrie and I will forego the pleasures of holiday travel and stay home for Christmas. NYC is always very peaceful on a holiday

I love how there is a parade for everything in NOLA- this afternoon the Krewe of Jingle had a wonderful parade to kick off the Xmas season. Tonight there is the Krewe of Krampus parade honoring the demon who takes naughty children to the underworld. A darker note 😳

Those are massive roles perhaps better-suited to actors more ambitious and vigorous than I am. Im more interested in fools than kings

So difficult! I thought about Shakespeare and my pioneer great-great-grandfather but this morning I had a more satisfying idea- to spend an evening with my mother when she was a girl

period shows with hair and beards are toughest- a heavy wig is a special torture, anchored with 100 bobbypins to pincurls of your own hair. Cant tell you what a relief it is to take it off. And lady actors do this stuff EVERY DAY! A woman in a period play is a true heroine

I used to do the NY Times crossword a lot but when I figured out how much time I was spending on it I weaned myself off. Have been flirting with it again lately, tho
