Martha: Missed Career as a Radio Actress

by | Jun 4, 2012 | Featured, home & hearth | 0 comments

A couple of weeks back, our local OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learner Institute) held the annual end of the year “Picnic” and General Meeting. A lovely Picnic, held indoors with AC and no ants or other wildlife. The menu included bar-b-que, potato salad and desserts. But, the entertainment was the highlight for me: The participants in the “Curtains Up!” class, which studied and did readings from several plays during the spring term, shared scenes from those plays with the group. Who knew that my very on mother, Martha, had such talent? She took on a role played by Meryl Streep in “Doubt” for starters. She read the part of the wife in a Neil Simon play with impeccable comedic timing. As I said, “Who knew?”

I only wish I had been making a video/audio recording instead of just still shots.

  • Two edged sword
    A time be born, a time to die… When my brother in law died nearly 3 years ago, I sang those words at his memorial service. “To everything,[turn, turn, turn] there is a season [turn, turn, turn] and a time to every purpose under heaven.” Today as we were out running errands, the Byrds sang […]
  • Expanding the Social Circle
    We got brave: my daughter and her family needed to vacate because their house is on market and there were several showings. They brought the kids’ bikes and skates and legos, and the son-in-law’s golf clubs (his parents live very close by). We spent hours on the back porch just being and talking. Kev played […]
