moving: chapter three (the arrival)

So, we're here in Stoughton.  We've been here just over a week, actually.  I'm just now getting settled in enough to sit and write something about everything we've been through thus far... The move has gone about as smoothly as could be expected.  On the day we left, the biggest source of stress was simply … Continue reading moving: chapter three (the arrival)

moving: chapter two (goodbyes)

Just over two months ago, I began what I imagined would be a series of blog posts detailing the long, drawn-out, and emotionally fraught process that has been my relocation from Bloomington to Boston.

It all started with the very first show I ever music-directed -- a University Players production of 'The Rocky Horror Show'.  I had booked -- weeks in advance, mind … Continue reading retirement: chapter three

retirement: chapter one…

I realize it's customary for a person to actually have had a career before declaring their retirement.  Well.  Screw custom. The past twelve months have not been my best.  In fact, they've been some of the worst, personally and professionally.  Which has led to a great deal of mopey, self-pitying blog posts.  My apologies (to the … Continue reading retirement: chapter one…
