Audtitioning for Swan Lake (again!)

Photo by Amy Barnes.

My friend, Amy Barnes, took this photo after the 10:30 show last night so it must have been very close to midnight by the time we were finished talking. I love this photo because I look so happy! There are still four more shows at the indyFringe15...come on out! Be sure to catch other shows while you are there!

Today is the birthday of my twin sons, Adam and Aaron. I wish them the happiest of all birthdays and that this year will bring them joy and peace.

The second photo was taken on the farm when life was sweet and peaceful. I think this photo was taken on one of the happiest days of my life. 

Note to all young parents: love each of those moments in your children's lives. The time vanishes so quickly...carpe diem.

Happy, happy birthday!

Meteor showers...

Photo by Barry Simmons

Last night I set my alarm for 2 a.m. to go out and watch the meteor showers. I was not disappointed!

I was able to catch quite a few during the early morning hours. With clear cool skies over Indiana, I made myself comfortable on my backyard bench while waiting for the showl

It is not too late if you missed it. The peak time for viewing will be in the a.m. on the 13th. So go set your alarm. There is nothing more beautiful than the early morning darkness. Enjoy!

White Picket Gardens in the Spring.

It has only been a week and a day that I have been on AirBnB; however my old houses has been filled with guests three nights already.

I didn't know what to expect with this new adventure, but so far I am loving it. My guests have all been different and from different parts of the world. 

Last night my guests were a young couple from Switzerland. They are on summer holiday from the university and traveling across the United States. They chose Indiana specifically as they did not know much about it.

Today they are traveling on old Route 20 across the state towards Chicago. It is a beautiful day for travel.

Last night we sat out late at the campfire telling stories and listening to the quiet sounds of late August. The cicadas were the only sounds we could hear besides our voices. Once in a while a far away train whistle added to the ambiance. The lightning bugs are still out which is good as I have missed them this summer.

If you know of anyone traveling across northern Indiana, send them my way!

Farewell, November!
