Happy New Year…Almost!
|ME, Harlan Boll, Harry Kullijian, Linda Kosut|
What are your plans for tomorrow night? If your plans are to be in Times Square, please be careful I hope that wherever you are you are surrounded by love and peace and happiness!
This afternoon, I am joining friends in New York City to see My Week with Marilyn and to "break bread". I can't think of a better way to bring this year to a close… almost. Tomorrow, my blog will focus on the shows I've seen this year and I have seen so many!
I would also like to acknowledge a very special birthday today: Russ Tamblyn. I am a huge fan of Russ'. I actually wrote about him a few weeks ago in my blog when I was covering the fact that Russ Tamblyn, George Shakira's, and Rita Moreno were all immortalizing themselves even further by placing their footprints and handprints at Grauman's Chinese theater. It is nice to know that some of what was once the glamour of Hollywood still exists. I was lucky enough at that time to interview George. I am still hoping that I will have that opportunity with either Ross or Rita. If any of you reading this, know either one of them please let them know of my desires. Till tomorrow, I
love you all.

This many weeks since your Jerry Herman Birthday Celebration for the Sheet Music Society - - the afternoon stays in my mind. You achieved the most wonderful combination of entertainment, education, humor, sentiment, honor and respect with regard to the work of Jerry Herman. The people you put together were each sensational and there for such different reasons, offering different perspectives. The "inside" nature of it mad it seem like we were in your living room. I thank you and look forward to your next one!
It was lovely meeting Richard Skipper Tuesday evening at the ACOR seminar. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience. I was particularly touched to learn that Richard is a champion of arts education, as that is a passion of mine as well.
I attended Richard Skipper's workshop at The Arts Council of Rockland on Tuesday night (11/15/11). I was prepared for an evening of scribbling down dry information which I would have promptly ignored when I got home. Instead I was treated to a fun and engaging evening. Richard provided many "ahh ha" moments. He made the information relevant, and instilled a sense of urgency to do it now! Most importantly for me, Richard gave me the permission I was not aware I needed to pursue an audience outside of my comfort zone. Thank you Richard Skipper!
