Long but good week - drove Florida-Memphis-Michigan-Indianapolis-Michigan. Indianapolis was a fun corporate event, a reception with a circus theme. Basically, after a long day of conventioneering, the various companies showcasing their products put on receptions in the hotel ballrooms, sort of competing for guests, to see who has the coolest/most fun party. I think ours won hands-down, and I hope they get a lot of hand-sanitizer orders from it!

Class visits and aerial rigging and open circus play day yesterday, class visits and more rigging today, and this afternoon we auditioned about 120 kids and cast 97 - the only ones we couldn't use were elementary kids too floppy to be acrobats but not young enough to enjoy being "lions".

It's been draining. Good, but draining.

Good thing I wrote first today :) Well, second. Class visits and rigging 8AM-11AM, and then I got my ass to the coffee shop and caught up with emails and wrote until going back to school at 2:30PM.

I'm wading through about 100 new ones in the inbox and everything else that's by the wayside, so if I owe you contact, I'll be functional again tomorrow night. Or maybe Sunday.

Huh! I realize I don't know you much, but my image of you so far has been of a writer traveling in foreign countries writing things. Now ... putting on a circus-themed reception at a corporate event? Context shift!

She does both! IIRC, we should be seeing more circus for a bit, and then she'll go back to primarily writing for a bit.

That's a great photo, Whipchick -- it looks lovely. I like the little tutus (or are they bigger dresses at more of a distance? I can't tell) -- it's cute, and adds even more color. :)

That's quite a lot of travel and excitement. And don't worry about emailing me. I'm not in any hurry.
