My heart is sore. There, I’ve said it. I don’t want to go on whining about my ills. It’s tiresome. People will become bored and impatient or, worse yet, will worry. Or they might give advice. Sometimes advice is hard to listen to. You know it is the right thing to do, but you already knew the right thing to do; you just didn’t do it. Or it isn’t the right thing to do, but you know they mean well. Or they are just being officious, and you want to throat punch them. But I’m sure none of my readers fall into the last category.
One reason I feel wrong about dwelling on my problems is that it is Sept. 11. I wanted to dig out my TV Journal from 9/11/2001 and share some of the things I wrote at the time. I was home recovering from a bunion operation and sat glued to the television all day. What a terrible event. But I’m too tired and ill to brave the mess we call a library.
I just looked up at the television and saw something about the latest hurricane soon to make landfall. I feel terrible for everybody in the path of that. I do appreciate that I am not currently dealing with any severe weather, under the heading of Count Your Blessings.
In the meantime, I have a blog post to make, and I must make it before I head tofirst dress rehearsal for Shattered Angel, being presented by the Herkimer County Historical Society in cooperation with Ilion Little Theatre. Opening night is Friday. Yikes! It is Sept. 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22 and 23. Performances are at 7:30 on the 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22; and 2 p.m. on the 16 and 23. Tickets are $15. For more information, contact the Historical Society at 315-866-6413.
Tomorrow I have rehearsal for Donate to Murder, the murder mystery LiFT, Little Falls Theatre Company, is presenting at Herkimer Elks Lodge on Saturday, Sept. 15. Yikes! That’s close too, with fewer rehearsals left! It is dinner theatre with $25 tickets including a turkey dinner by Brian Hess of PK’s Pub. Yum! For more information, contact the Elks at 315-866-1439.
I guess I’ll call this a Tired Tuesday post and drive on. At least I plugged two plays.
