Plan Be(e)

This should have posted very (very) early Sunday morning, but for some reason it didn't. So, here it is now .--I'm dating it for Sunday, 10/6  even though I discovered the weirdness today. 

On this, the beginning of the week of my daughter's twenty-eighth birthday, I'm writing about my son. She will get her time to shine as the date draws nearer, the "birthday princess" shall not be denied her due. Still, for all her presence, he has been very much on my mind. 

The actor has gone through some changes, most good and some, even better. His passion for his craft is stronger than ever and his hard work and tenaciousness is inspiring. He is closer to his Equity (stage actor's union) card and thanks to some screen work he's eligible to join the Screen Actor's Guild. If things progress as planned he'll be able to buy in by year's end. 

He also anticipates moving out (again) by year's end or early in 2014. That is to say (again) if things progress as planned. He's researched some interesting housing arrangements, his budget being what it is.  If a gig he's in line for pans out the budget will adjust UP. In either case, he'll be fine. He's given all of this a tremendous amount of thought and effort. 

It need not be said that I'm rooting for him in every way possible. He has an extremely level head on his shoulders and I anxiously await the show as his immediate and not so immediate future begins to play out in real life as it has in his expertly coiffed head. 

While I will miss our near daily exchanges, I know as well (if not better) than he, that he must move on. He is beyond excited about the prospect and that . . . exuberance is positively intoxicating. 

 . . . and away we go.  


  1. Your son is incredibly handsome! I think I would cast him as Denzel's son.

    Fingers crossed for his career success.

    BTW - this did show up in my feed over the weekend but when I went to read it, it was gone.

    1. Thank you 8thday. MY actor would welcome your casting choices. :-)

      I think the posting snafu was my fault. I was working on a whole other post but was unable to get IT to load--I thought it had been deleted but IT sits in my drafts as we speak.

  2. I'd like to ditto everything that 8thday said!

    That's a tough row to hoe, career-wise, but enthusiasm and tenacity are a big part of success.

    Good job, mom!

    1. True, all true. And, thank you.

    I am glad he is pursuing his dream. I agree with Howard Thurman: "Don't ask what the world needs. As what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

    And he is very handsome. Whew.

    1. As am I. I am honored and very lucky to have had a window seat through most of it. :-) Thank you for the quote.

      Thank you.

  4. Your two children are pretty graced to have you for a Mama.
