"I, the Lord of sea and sky, I have heard my people cry."

The faculty over coffee this morning were discussing belief in God and then whether religiosity really has been shown to prolong life. I felt like I was home listening to my dad and was sad I could only catch snippets of the conversation.

I'm on the QueerSoup mailing list and got this this morning:
On the evening of February 19th, Queer Soup will present a one night performance of "Home" nominated for Best New Play (Small Theater Division) by the Independent Reviewers of New England!

The one night performance is a fundraiser for our upcoming educational tour to raise awareness about transgender and queer identity issues. "Home" delves into a family whose faith is rocked with the death-bed revelation that the minister’s grandfather was born biologically female. The Boston performance will raise the necessary funds to cover the show’s touring expenses as Queer Soup is dedicated to performing regardless of the venue’s ability to pay. "Home" will be performed at the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre on Monday, February 19th, 2007 at 7:30 PM.

Tickets are a suggested donation of $20 and can be purchased at the door or by placing a reservation. For reservations and information, please call 617-824-4297, or visit http://www.queersoup.net/.
Long-time readers may recall that I've attended both the staged reading and full production and endorse the show.

Also, weirdness, I was Googling for "The Naked I" (to see if I could find if it is on tour anywhere) and found this essay; so weird to think of Shep as "Simon."


Learned during proofing today, GrammarBook.com says, "Sometimes sentences are meant to trail off. Use ellipsis marks without any ending punctuation in this situation."
