A Mouse...Knights... Ready For Battle.

If you give a mouse a cookie he will ask you for a glass of milk...

That was the very first theater production she ever watched and just like the mouse... if you take a girl to a theater she too will want to be up there. On the main stage under the bright lights becoming a new character with a new story to tell  every single time. She is endlessly fascinated with the theater and the theater has allowed her to be a fairy, a servant, an orphan, a mother, a queen and many other fairy tale characters and each time is obvious she falls in love with the theater more and more each day...

1st play Sleeping Beauty Legend of Briar Rose

The play was a success and it closed to a full house. Watching children work so hard, determined and focused makes my heart so happy. Just when I think that future generations don't have the spunk and the will to create bigger and better I am proven wrong. Just like I proved my parents wrong when they thought my generation had no strength and ingenuity. I attended a show comprised of children and it is clear to me that there is hope. Children want acknowledgement and they truly want to work hard and together.

A Monster Ate My Homework.

Maia has grown leaps and bounds and I continue walking this path in awe watching her grow and develop into a beautiful young lady.

But there were also many times this weekend where sadness tried to creep up... even though I was happy for her I felt waves of sadness... The need that I had to share life with my brother was great and his absence was felt once again so deeply...

So, I went around trying to banish all those dark corners in my head....Proud as if I stood tall on a hill...
I waved rainbows and white flags through our clear skies. I kept beckoning the sugar sweet of life and life delivered by providing me with the time to spend with friends and family -which always helps in the healing process.  My family like an army comprised of the most powerful knights fought all the monsters that were threatening my happiness and they were victorious...

I was back after a few hours of hiding in dark corners and came back triumphant because after all we all know who the real knight is and who was truly exhausted after battling all those horrible creatures...

  2. Your daughter is so lovely...you must be so proud. I am glad you turned away from the sadness into the gladness. I know it's not always easy to do but what a wonderful example you are giving your daughter. Hang in there.

  3. I was just partaking in the ‘Relax and Surf’ blog hop that is being hosted by Rylie and Bryce Too. I noticed your blog and thought I would stop by.

    And how glad am I that I did? Everything you write about is so diverse - your daughter (gorgeous) performing on stage, and then the poignancy of your brother. I'll be back!

    Anyway, I am now following you – it would be cool if you could come and visit me at my place too!

  4. Great post. I always dig seeing the young getting into theater. I spent a number of years involved in the theater...a theater company in Los Angeles. Was a rewarding yet tough period of my life. The theater is one of those things that gets inside of you. So much self expression and reward to be had in so many ways.

  12. Its always so great stopping by your blog. Hearing your thoughts. They resonate so much with me at times. I like the pics of your daughter on stage. I remember my days of craving to be in the spotlight and when every emotion could be summed up by the movement of my toes, stretches and pose.
