What a long, strange week it’s been! I spent a few days working a fashion show/fundraiser for a local medical research institute, then worked the awards event for our seventh annual international art competition, and now I’ve got a couple of days off to recoup before getting back to it. The most fun for me was the awards event, because it was held in one of the community theatres where I grew up. It had been years since I was there, and they’ve since done a major renovation, but it was a lot like coming home… Especially since most of the people I now work with all got our start there.
