MY DAY: Sunday is in the books

I was at The Park from 11:30 AM until 5:00 PM. My first students, both former students now in college who continue to study with me via Zoom, couldn’t be at their lessons so my teaching day commenced at 6:00 PM and finished at 11:30 PM.

Tomorrow, I will spend time with the Bane family for our annual Holiday At Home parade outing. I taught their two eldest children, each now in college. Ellie and Jacob also starred as the two de Beque children in my 2009 production, SOUTH PACIFIC. We began our parade adventures back in 2007. Their third child, Noah, is now in middle school.

Even though it’s a Monday holiday, I will still teach in the late afternoon and evening since students are usually back in town by then.

There were a number of Hoosier visitors to The Park. Two ladies had T-shirts on for Culver Military Academy in Indiana. I explained that I was a fellow Hoosier and that several of my high school and college friends had attended Culver. I tossed in that my directing mentor, Joshua Logan, had also attended Culver via way of his stepfather, Professor Noble.

“Yes! Joshua Logan was one of Broadway’s biggest and best. He co-wrote and directed SOUTH PACIFIC and then directed the movie, too,” said the one woman.

That warmed my heart. A lot.
