The show must go on!

I performed in a Slam a few years ago -- my first one! I was sooo nervous. I am used to performing for children, and Slams are for grown-ups (you know who you are). Everything went fine, though, miraculously. Really, it was a miracle, because the performance was supposed to be a two-person piece. The day before we went on, however, my other performer had a family emergency and had to go to Atlanta. It was a real emergency, too, so I couldn't even be upset. I just had to reconfigure the piece for just lil' ol' me....
From Plight of the Bumblebee, a Slam piece by Barefoot Puppets.

I think this 365 project will be a lot like that. Things come up in our lives all the time, but the show must go on! Stay tuned...the adventure starts tomorrow! Wish me a happy birthday while you're at it!


  1. And the flowers in the piece above, were by my daughter when she was about seven or eight years old. I love them!

  2. Happy Birthday! I'm curious to see this...

    If this is the one about the vanishing bees, I remember you and Sam hurriedly practicing it before you went off to the Slam!

  3. That's the one. Melanie was supposed to be on stage with me. Oh well! Sam was pitching in as the man who controlled the overhead projector...someday I'd like to do it again with the "full" cast!
