Some Catching Up

August 19, 2022

I can’t believe it has been seven months since my last post! I can assure you that’s not because there has been nothing happening. Quite the opposite, in fact.

–I mentioned in an earlier post that I am working with filmmaker Ela Thier on the development of a television series. That work continues.

–Through Ela, I also enrolled in a writing/filmmaking mentorship program. That occupied me from early February until the end of July.

–Thanks to the mentorship program, I worked on a new revision of my screenplay “Season of Mists” and organized a table read in May.

–Thanks to the revisions for “Seasons,” it was a finalist in two contests: Table Read My Screenplay and the Mystic Film Festival.

–I also wrote the first draft of another feature screenplay. Currently at work on the second draft.

–Through my new friends in the mentorship program, I attended a film festival in Brooklyn and got to meet several of them in person–not just on a screen!

–I found out my stage play “Invincible Summer” is being staged for a production this fall. Rehearsals start this Saturday.

–In July, Darlene and I flew out to San Diego to take my mother’s ashes out to her final resting place in the Pacific Ocean.

–I attended three concerts (or five, really): Marillion weekend (that was three), Jon Anderson, and Belew, Fripp and Mastelotto–probably the closest to seeing King Crimson perform live as we’re going to get at this point.

–And I have certainly been paying attention to the madness that is gripping certain political sectors about Critical Race Theory, Moms for Liberty and the “grooming” of trans kids. I have many thoughts to share on these things as well…

–Oh, and Darlene and I eloped on a mountaintop in New Hampshire and had a honeymoon in Portugal!

All of these merit individual entries, and they are coming over the next few weeks. So please stay tuned–it will be worth it!

Thanks for sticking with me.
