    I wanted to write something about the fact that we started rehearsal this week and it’s going very well and it’s always a joy to see the characters you’ve written alive and breathing before you. And all that’s true and it’s great as well. And I don’t want to get my high horse atop a soap box but I sat down to write this entry and, of course, before I do anything else at the computer I check my email and there’s an email in there from my director, Niegel Smith, and it’s just a headline and a link from the Times:

    But wait, it's Friday July 9--no, make that the 10th. Or is it Saturday? I don't really know. I just know I'm late getting my post to the blog. This however is not because I'm some sort of slacker or scatter-brain, it's because I've just driven 3,156 miles to be sitting here at my desk in New York again. I was in California with my girlfriend. She's a set designer and was working out there for the summer. I went to spend time with her and to bring us both back back east. Logistically it isn't a hard thing to do: Pack car, get in, note rising of sun, head towards that. Cross mountains, desert, more mountains, plains, plains, plains, prairie and farmland, farmland, farmland, mountains again, more farmland, Jersey-ness, follow eyes and ears to big, noisy city, get across city, survive the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, park outside Astoria apartment, unpack, collapse.
