Yesterday marked mark three months since the passing of my friend Shirley.
I think about her a lot. Especially now because we co-directed the school play and this year I am finally doing something we always wanted to do; have the play earlier in the school year.
We are doing Mowgli: Boy of the Jungle ( Junglebook). It was one of her favorite plays. We haven’t performed it in ten years. Almost fifty students signed up so we have a large pack of wolves and a fairly big troop of monkeys.
Shirley would be also be happy to know that a dad who’s a DJ has offered to help with the sound. More mics! We might get to hear all the actors! The sound is the trickiest part.
Life is moving forward and Shirley is still with me. She’s not far away.
