Back to Blogging

I haven't blogged here since 2012. Why am I making a stab at it again?

I realized two things about social media I wanted to get away from. First was that I was often using it as a journal, which is boring and maybe TMI for those platforms. Secondly I was using it too much for my taste, so that I felt like a tool for marketers rather than using social media as a tool for my ends.

Tough Audience

Eric and James picked up Mom for a trip to Volunteer Park where I was involved in the Seattle Outdoor Theatre Festival, playing several characters in MacBeth and Julius Caesar with Last Leaf Productions.

Mom didn't want to bring the wheelchair, which turned out to be a mistake as they went to the wrong stage for the 5pm show, which wore out Mom and Eric who carried her to the Ampitheater lawn. I caught up with them after the show relaxing in the sun. It got to be a bit much and Eric and I carried her back up to the shade and visited for a while longer. Then they bundled her up into James' truck and took her back to Queen Ann Manor.

She seemed to have lost a lot of strength and tone. From the disease, the muggy heat, or both. It was a bit of work for all involved, we had to be tough as us northwesters aren't acclimated to the hot.
