Desiderata

-- written by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s --

Not "Found in Old St. Paul's Church"! -- see below



Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,

and remember what peace there may be in silence.



As far as possible, without surrender,

be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;

and listen to others,

even to the dull and the ignorant;

they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons;

Annie Moore

Me, a poet..?? (Truth is stranger than fiction)

No Answers



I’m sorry, but you’ll get no answers from me.

Hell, if I had answers, ‘tis wealthy I‘d be.

Questions are many, but answers are few,

And the wealthy don’t share with the likes of me and you..

Their happiness, prosperity, and tax benefits.

Oh, they’ll tell you it’s hard work, perseverance and toil,

The Hobbit - so far

Well, my first time blogging -

"The Hobbit" opened Saturday and the crowd was nearly a sellout..!!! The director said it was the first time the Children's Theatre EVER sold balcony seats..!! Dress rehearsal on Thursday was a train wreck, Friday's rehearsal went much better - and, as often is the case, the MAGIC happened on Saturday - the kids were absolutely phenomenal..!! (and the old man remembered almost all his lines and cues)

Then - guess what..?? Sunday afternoon, we did…
