Everything happens for a reason,
Not that I can tell--
But  then
        I've been wrong before.

I'm Baaaaaack!

I took off more than a a couple of weeks. But I'm back. I've been working on a new script. I've been producing new plays. Working new jobs. Reading. Doing some oral history interviews. Doing some traveling. Preparing for and teaching classes. Volunteering with Hospice. Doing a bit of everything except writing poems. Well, today's my last day of "vacation." Come back tomorrow and see what's new.

It's that time of year: vacation time! So I'm going to take one, at least from the blog. For two weeks, until July 26th, I'm taking time off. I'll go see some plays-- next up on my agenda is to go see THE WONDER TEAM at Pioneer Playhouse. I'll also be working on an oral project about the Looking for Lilith Theatre Company in Louisville. I'm producing the Kentucky New Play Series which involves premiering six (6) new plays by Kentucky playwrights at the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville on August 18th. Oh, yeah and I've started working on a new full-length play. I'm sure it will be a restful two weeks. :)

No Third Shift
All is quiet.
The lights are dimming out.
The machinery,
    presses and the like,
        have been turned off.
Soon it will be both dark and quiet,
    until the mice return from work
       and  begin to play.

Oldest Steer Roping Competitor
The man could rope and ride
   like a real cowboy.
But sitting atop his horse--
   gray bearded
    with a worn black cap
       and brown t-shirt--
   he looked more like a stubbed out cigar.

We are Insignificant

One of my favorite things about living at Roxford is the hugeness of the sky and my ability to see for miles in all directions. Thunderstorms are amazing to watch as they grow higher and higher, then roll across the landscape bringing much-needed rain, scary damaging winds, sometimes flooding. Whichever it is, the thunder and lightning always make me feel insignificant, a tiny being stranded alone on my hilltop.  ~Jeanine
