I have two intense days’ worth of writing and playgoing ahead of me. Then I’m off to Smalltown, U.S.A., first thing Friday morning (the car comes at 4:30) for a family reunion. Next week I’ll be writing like a madman for a couple of hectic days in New York, after which I’m off again to see plays in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.
My point? You won’t be seeing much of me in this space for the next couple of weeks, save for the odd almanac entry. I’ll look in whenever I can, but mostly I’ll be leaving you in the lovely hands of Our Girl in Chicago. Enjoy the pleasure of her company. I always do.
