since blogger isn't allowing me to show you my photos of where I've been...
let me tell you about how exciting it is that there is FREE SHAKESPEARE around here!
ARTFARM which I believe is led by Dick Wheeler of Oddfellows Playhouse...presents TWELFTH NIGHT (can you say that and not trip over the f?) at the Community College.
We watched them perform Midsummer's Night Dream two years ago and they were incredible, I was speechless.......
and we skipped last years MacBeth....see, I picked up the abridged version from the local library to teach the kids before subjecting them to old english....and missed opening night.
That was a blessing in disguise as a friend told us of how gruesome and detailed the killing of the mother in front of the children was; so we skipped it last year.
But a comedy of errors???? We are off to see it.....and around here all week are words from the abridged version of Twelfth night.
"mommy, WHY does she pretend to be a man again????"
ah my dear daughter, because in a time not so long ago, women could not be women of strength and courage.
at which point my 5 year old starts to show me all her NEW KARATE moves thanks to her attendance to KUNGFU PANDA this week. Yup, it got so hot that I begged my 20 year old to take the kids to the "theater near you" (as they call it).
I am told by my daughter that the Panda bear thought he couldn't be chosen because he was too fat. Can this be true? In the end it was his SUPER FAT belly that the villan bounced off of and was sent to the abyss. "so you see," she informs me "it was his FAT, the thing that made him think he couldnt that was the very thing needed to make him could".
wise, isnt' she?
so is Hollywood saying that it is ok to be fat??? only if you are a panda bear. LOL
I am told that there is also a free performance of Merchant of Venice down New London way. I just may bring my family out there.....that was my first encounter with the old english and when I fell in love. While my peers in 9th grade moaned and complained; it came to me. It really did. Like somehow I may have written the very words in a previous life.
I am not blogging so much partly because we are never around but mostly because I am having major blogger issues with photo uploads. If it keeps up, I may find a new corner to blog in.
Happy summer to you all and stay cool!
So you'll love me - As the excavation of my soul continues, more and more epiphanies are breaking through. I have been intentional in listening to my heart, my "deep down."...
