Wednesday, May 11th - San Francisco, California

Well, here I am another year older. 43 - it's one of those prime numbers that you can't do a whole lot with other than live through until you hit 44, which is at least palindromic. This week is being spent in the SF bay area. I agreed to teach a course for the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology on pre-op for older women with a couple of friends. Not a huge attendance but it's a free trip out west and the comforts of the SF Mariott. Did the first part yesterday, doing the rest today. Had dinner last night at a restaurant, Ponzu, that was a great Asian fusion place.

Trying to learn all my pages for the play at Birmingham Festival that opens June 2nd. Found out today that the director just quit and is being replaced. Always an uncomfortable moment, especially when I'll be coming into rehearsals late. I'm more than just a little crazed about this show. I haven't done something this line heavy in a black box in forever. I hope I'm up to it.

Tommy and I are heading up to Sacramento for the weekend to see old friends. It always feels a little odd in this part of the world without Steve but life moves on.
