The evening is warm. Well, at least inside the house, it is warm. It is, however, quite lovely outside on the deck.
My teaching week is over. And what a fantastic week of teaching it was!
The writing continues.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reuniting with The Lincolns this week, and tearing through massive rewrites. I actually began writing on this project in 1987 following a full year of extensive research.
This musical actually began as a composition project with President Lincoln as the topic. Before long, I discovered that Mrs. Lincoln’s story was quite interesting, and began researching her more in depth. When I moved to Dayton, Ohio in 1990, I dabbled with the musical project for several years, but due to an expanding career in teaching and directing, the musical was placed on the back burner.

Here is a video from earlier this evening… these Kids are so much fun!
