I started this blog to track my travels, and it's been a whole week since I returned from NYC with nary a word written. For shame. Of course, I have been busy. You know, building stick sculptures, shaking the rust off my acting skilz, working. Always working. Trying to shoehorn some sleep and exercise in there, mostly unsuccessfully.
But it's the start of a three day weekend, and I left my computer at work. So though I might start shaking from withdrawal soon, I figured now was the time to get a-crackin before I forget everything about the trip. But lest I bore you with too much blabbity blah, here's my trip, in as few words as possible.
Saturday 5/12: Work on stick sculpture, shop, pack, clean, pack, deposit dog at friends' house, to bed around midnight.
|Rondo! This made me think|
of my mom, obsessed
Celtics fan that she is.
|Good grief, they are just too cute.|
|Performers from Once rocking out.|
|Our lunchtime entertainment.|
|I wasn't supposed to take this picture.|
Guess the blurriness is my punishment.
But, that's Christian & Kevin up there.
A creative conversation with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Mike Nichols (Death of a Salesman) is already awesome. Then add that MERYL STREEP!!! was our surprise moderator and you have finally, finally gotten this jaded gal to get the celebrity-induced shivers. I was 30 feet from Meryl. It was awesome, and they actually were very interesting to listen to - they take their work seriously.
|Jill is doing an excellent|
Friday 5/18: Sleep in, pack, wander the city, head back to the airport, fly home, pick up dog, collapse into bed.
Basic reflections on the week:
I need the inspiration that simply seeing work and talking about it brings.
NYC was dirtier and more crowded than usual, it seemed. I think it had to do with our hotel location - I like being north of Times Square rather than south.
Another League Conference under my belt. It was kick-ass. I'm a lucky, lucky gal.
