All Blog Entries,  NYC,  Tex in the City

June 12, 2002

It seems difficult to find a starting point to this version of my site. For years I’ve used manual HTML coding and shorthand to keep a log of my goings on. I wish I had started with November 18, 2000 — the day I moved to New York City — so my entries wouldn’t have been lost. Since I can’t turn back time, June 12, 2002 will begin this online diary.

Tonight I will venture to Don’t Tell Mama to watch a cabaret performance of Kevin Farr, et al. It is interesting that I’ve become acquainted with Kevin as I first met him when I was 15 years old and had not seen him since. Kevin played “Blifil” in the play “Tom Jones” for his tiny high school in Boyd, Texas. I played “Miss Western” in the same play for my large high school in N. Richland Hills, Texas. My drama teacher, David Michael Hall, sponsored a workshop in which Kevin’s school performed their play for us and vice versa. It was a fun learning experience and I still remember vividly how different our interpretations were of the same play. I never could have imagined that I would know Kevin all these years later.
