the latest and greatest.....
It's been quite a while since I have posted anything here......Sorry about that, my dears.
I feel like I have very little to say since my life is so restricted by my Health issues.....
I don't go anywhere, so, there are no new adventures to talk about......
I do watch a lot of TV......films and some shows.....It's getting close to Emmy time again, and as a voter, I have received umpteen amounts of "For Your Consideration" DVD screener's......plus, now you can watch so very many things on Netflix and Amazon, etc.
And, many many things are available through the Television Academy's Website......
It is pretty overwhelming and I cannot watch everything.....but, I try to see as much as I can. There are so very many channel's now, between the three Networks and all the Cable Networks, etc.....
This is just one tiny example of what is mailed to you---and then there is HBO, STARZ, NETFLIX,TNT, FX, USA, BET, NBC, CBS, ABC, BRAVO, THE FOOD NETWORK, COMEDY CENTRAL, and about 25 other networks and/or Producing Company's..........ALL send these elaborate boxes filled with pictures and, of course, the DVD's----all this---must cost a fortune!
Trying to watch all that.....?
It Is Daunting!
The good thing about it is, doing all this makes me feel a part of my old life, so to speak.
And voting makes me feel as if I am still contributing in some way.....
The first go round of voting began on Monday (June 15th and goes through Friday, June 26th) and this year, for the very first time, ALL the voting is going to be done
No more paper ballots.
No more paper anything.
The Television Academy has definitely moved into the 21st Century, in a BIG way!
I'm not sure how this will go for me, because I always had a system that worked well when it was still all on paper.....
This is going to be interesting, or a disaster!
Well, here's the answer!
It is a frggin' Nightmare!
But.......I persevere, anyway.
The only other bit of nice news I can share with you is that a play written by the wonderful Actor/Writer, Jim Beaver, called
which was first produced 30 years ago at Theatre West----and for which I wrote a song and score, was revived in a new production at Theatre West and once again, my music and song (with me singing from the tape from 1985) were used as they had been back then.
I didn't get to see it, but I got some lovely feedback on the production and particularly on my musical contribution to the play.
It was a lovely reminder of what that part of my creative life was like before my confinement.
Other than that, my days are spent taking care of all the many holes in my body and just trying to get some joy out of whatever small things I can.
And speaking of the little joys, here is a bit more news:
I have a Birthday coming up towards
the end of the month and I am planning on having a small dinner party here in my home, with some dear close friends.
How the hell did that happen????
So, life goes on as best it can.......
More To Come.........
