Planting Seeds and Morning Phone Calls


I just woke up to a great phone call... one of the musicals I wrote with Darren Butler will have an off-off Broadway run this fall!!! "We The People" will be produced and run in small venues in New York City. Small room... small audience, not a lot of revenue, but the exposure to 'musical theater city' will be more than worth it.

I'll be busy now with writing manuscripts of all the songs (I just taught the original cast the songs). I'll have to finally get that new pair of glasses I've been putting off, but it will be a labor of love, hehe.

What I want to tell YOU, dear friends, is that no matter what the talking heads say about the economy of the world, you need to keep planting your creative seeds. You never know what morning phone calls you may receive, just when you think that seed has rotted in hard ground. And your soul will be fed so you can move on to the next seed.

We plant, God waters. We need to keep doing authentic, excellent work, watch for windows of opportunity and then let the chips (to mix metaphors) fall where they may.

May all your good seeds be blessed. Also... you're very welcome to share your dreams here... we'd love to hear about them!

    I'm so happy my friend, Elli Fordyce, recommended your blog to me! And, thanks for the positive outlook as sometimes the news can be a total downer! I'm working on my dreams of being completely self-employed with my shows, gigs, writing and students! Little by little it grows. I loved the thought of "we plant, God waters". It's good to hear and be reminded of these truths! :-) best of luck with your off-broadway show! I look forward to more of your posts!

    Love this paragraph from your message:

    "What I want to tell YOU, dear friends, is that no matter what the talking heads say about the economy of the world, you need to keep planting your creative seeds. You never know what morning phone calls you may receive, just when you think that seed has rotted in hard ground. And your soul will be fed so you can move on to the next seed."

    Very encouraging! Thanks!
