Yesterday was my big day. I presented my paper to the scholars conference along with three other scholarly types. The presentations went very well and they sparked a lively discussion with the participants; something that doesn’t often happen with such events. It helped that we had some nationally-recognized actors, directors, and teachers in the crowd.
Last night was the big gala dinner with some fun entertainment and some poignant moments. When it was all over I and two other participants went back to our hotel and packed up. We were picked up around 10:45 p.m. and driven to the airport hotel in Tulsa to spend the night so we could be up and ready to catch our flights home. The festival isn’t over until tonight, but we all have other obligations, mine being the premiere of a play of mine this evening at the Lake Worth Playhouse in Lake Worth, Florida. More about that later.
As it is, I am sitting in the gate at Tulsa International waiting for my flight back to Miami. I’ve had about four hours of sleep, so that’s why this post is a tad abbreviated. I took a bunch of pictures at Inge with my phone camera, so I’ll post the good ones — if there are any.
I will now embark upon a search for a good cup of coffee and a doughnut.
