Book #82: While reading Our Town, I found that the play makes a whole lot more sense if you read the preface in addition to reading/watching it. From the outside, the play appears to be about a normal American family, but if you read the preface you would know that there is more than that. The family is meant to be timeless, which is a thing that...
Yes, they'll all come to see me
In the shade of that old oak tree
As they lay me 'neath the green, green grass of home🎶
EMILY:Oh, Earth, you're too wonderful for anybody to realize you…Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it?—every, every minute?
STAGE MANAGER: No. Saints and poets maybe...they do some.
“We all know that something is eternal. And it ain‘t houses and it ain‘t names, and it ain‘t earth, and it ain‘t even the stars...everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings...There‘s something way down deep that‘s eternal about every human being.”

My January bookclub is approaching and been putting this one off! We are going to each take a part and read/act it out. Wine will be flowing 🍷🍷🍷 It‘s been decades since I read this in high school and don‘t remember loving it. Maybe because they made us watch the play as well?!?! I feel like lance Kerwin was in it or Johnboy from The Walton‘s.
1. Probably Professor McGongall
2. Tagged book - one of my all time faves
3. To Kill a Mockingbird - my friends class was reading it in high school but not mine. I had a free period while she had a class so I would borrow her copy and read it along with her. My first "buddy read" I guess! Lol
4. I donated money for my sons school to do a luncheon. I also work in a school and we got goodies all week - it was great! #weekendchat @CSeydel
I spent this afternoon doing my weekly food prep and listening to the classic play, Our Town. I enjoyed reading it as a kid, but as an adult, it felt like a nostalgic remembrance of a time that never really was. Set in the Jim Crow era and pre-19th Amendment, I have a hard time believing things were that good. Still, if you ignore everything else, it‘s a sweet love story.
And tonight‘s dinner? Drunken cod and clams 😋
Tonight we had final dress for this show. I had never seen it before and the cast blew me away. There are two younger cast members who were brilliant and my friend was an amazing stage manager. The cast stays on the upper level watching the action that takes place in the rest of the theatre. I am so excited for people to see this beautiful show.
A view of the Taj at night from my front yard. During Christmas, they light it up green and red and during Easter/Fiesta (it's a San Antonio thing), it's lit up in a rainbow of colors. #landmarksofmycity @Clwojick
I've had such a stressful day at work, my feet are sore, and my stomach hurts 😫 So I am in definite need of some quality reading time. I've been slacking on my reading lately but moving to a new place is incredibly stressful and so is working 12 hour shifts for three days in a row (which I do every weekend, it's my regular shift) I promise I'm trying to make time for Litsy, as I do love it so much!
Bought this for my husband when he began writing his first script for a Christmas show for his Chorus. His plan was to use a narrator that only the audience could see. I didn't realize it won a Pulitzer! #alltheworldsastage
