'Til Another Day

Lisa, Christmas & Tea

It's time for another blog.

Where does the time go?

I've been tired lately. Is it just the holidays? Maybe it's the rainy weather. Can one be SADD in Hawaii?

Lisa's gone. I didn't keep in touch with her. I was always in awe of her and was amazed that I had the opportunity to work with her. I was never close to her personally...but I have felt her radiance. She let me be part of her magic.

If there's anything more weird than someone being gone, it's going through your old email and finding an email from them. The email, ironically, was about two deaths. Two people who were part of the 'ohana had lost their fathers. Lisa always had the right words.

"I am sorry to be the bearer of such sad news especially having to share two losses in such a short time. I guess, it's times like these, that really remind us just how brief our time is on this planet, and how precious each moment is for us to spend with our loved ones. And also how we just never really know when it is "our time" and how it always seems much too soon. It sure puts everything into perspective on what is really important. In any case, thank you so much for being a part of my life and for all your love, care and support. I am truly blessed to have you in my life! ... 'Til Another Day, Lisa"

I don't have the right words, Lisa. She created magic. She let us live in her world. She touched so many. She lived her dreams and she loved in the most simple and yet the most powerful way. I don't know if I ever knew anyone as genuine as Lisa, especially in the theatre community. I'll never forget you, Lisa.

Christmas '07

Maybe the best Christmas ever. At least since I was younger. It was the first Christmas that I was able to share with everyone I loved in one place. Mom, dad, amy & scooter. Mel and stan even dropped by for a bit.

We had "dinner" at Wailana. They all got the special. I had a belgian waffle. :)

How long have I been living here? I'm still not unpacked. Thank goodness for bedroom #2 and the lanai. This makes for storage space galor. Someday I hope to open those boxes. Letters I wrote to friends but never mailed. They don't know. I remember writing the letters, but they were never sent or received. Hmmm. Maybe that's one of my problems.

I'm trying to switch to tea. Well, not entirely. It's for money purposes. I spend like...$2 to $3 on coffee 4-5 days a week. I like iced coffee. I don't like to make iced coffee so I buy it. But tea...well...I love iced tea, but I do hot tea, too. I got a tea kettle for christmas (and some tea) so I'll be bringing that in to work from now on.

I can put the water in the kettle in the morning and put the stove on 5. I can get scooter ready to go out, walk him around outside until he goes potty, come back upstairs, put him away, and then my hot water will whistle. I pour it in my cup and I've got my tea all set in a tumbler to take to work.

I think maybe I'll buy more tea today. I want earl gray, too.
