In Memoriam - A Tribute to Mr. Percy

One of our local zookeepers also adopted unwanted/abandoned exotic animals that needed homes. He took them to community events and schools so children of all ages could get to know them, and there was never a charge for visiting his traveling menagerie. There's hardly a child in the tri-county area ...

Old Mill Two Ways

This old mill was a building I've passed a thousand times and hardly noticed until Steve was here, and he saw its potential. It was also fraught with challenges due to the ugly security fencing and proximity to the highway. I hope he'll look at his when he gets home, and see if he has any to add. I ...

Re: Othello, Performed On A Frozen Stage

Okay so now I hear Verdi! (Joe Green.) Poor doomed Desdemona stands shivering in the follow spot while slowly-going-mad Othello lurches toward her and his own destruction while Iago preens and crows in misplaced triumph downstage center! Magnifica tragedia! You saw it! I see it! No, not too dark; p...

Othello, Performed On A Frozen Stage

With the cast of characters you've seen before. It was a dark stage (this one is in the deeper bowels of the dam) with the stage lights being the actual daylight that gets in or reflected through the metal grates from above. It may just be too dark, so I'd welcome any advice.
