    Tulis, once more a unique essay! Love this – and I don’t like the dark unless I’m in a “quiet room” at a spa – but I appreciate your POV

    I agree dear friend! And this sentence: “It’s the dark that is the home for magic.” Pure Tulis Magic!

    Love it. Your voice adds so much. I will rethink some of my attitude toward it being dark at 5:00!!

      Seems like there must be a reason for it! That darkness. Lovely to hear from you.

    I’m all for that extra week of darkness between Christmas and New Year. I think it’s when my own shoots grow, getting ready for the year ahead.

        Tulis, I absolutely love this essay! You had me thinking of the dark in a different way. And I agree with Sandra Hall…it’s about your voice too & the presentation. Many thanks, dear friend.

The other day I signed up for a Lifetime Membership for a Meditation App. It seemed like a no-brainer, until I heard myself think, “Wait a minute – how long would I have to live to make this lifetime membership worthwhile?” A quick calculation told me I would have to live for three more years. That sounded doable. But what in the Sam Hill am I doing thinking thoughts like THAT?

Actors Are Magicians – January 23, 2023

Actors know that a world with no stories would go wobbling off into the Universe and burn to a crisp or freeze over until it was colder than the heart of a certain Supreme Court Justice.

Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King, Jr.

In addition to being King’s birthday, this year January 15th marked the closing date for SEVEN Broadway shows. Four of those shows feature black casts: “Death of a Salesman,” “A Strange Loop,” “Topdog/Underdog,” and “Ohio State Murders.” A fifth, “The Piano Lesson,” will close in two weeks.
