Here on the farm in Greenville, SC, I'm conducting a table reading for a play about Hudson Taylor with the teens from church and continuing rehearsals for the July 5 opening of Comedy of Errors: The Amazing One-Joke Play. We're leaving no stone unturned.

|Looks like I'm praying—just thinking hard|
Don't know whether the students had fun auditioning, but I had a blast. Saw some really great work from some new talent. Exciting! I could cast several of the ones I saw at callbacks in the lead roles and mount a good show.
Just sent notices out. Wish I could make everyone happy. . . .

|Love the animal skins.|

Love the Fortuny pleats in the last photo, and our shop has really begun to master the art of a rough-hewn pleating in the last few years.

|So much depends on nuts in the sidewalk . . .|
Why? Don't know. How? Couldn't say. Purposeful or random? Not sure. Interesting? Definitely.

|rendering (with swatches) for guard|
|shirt prototype—love seeing the vision take shape|
Well, it's time I started posting more things about Aida, the 2014 monster opera I'm working on. This project is huge, and I've already been designing costumes for about a year.
Progress is being made, however. Lots of fabric was bought last summer (lots but not all; stay tuned—another fabric buying trip to come!), and now several prototypes and actual garments are being draped. Great work being down by our costume department!
