And no, it’s not the raising terror alert in US.

It is, in fact, the colours of my script getting shorter. Much shorter. As difficult as it might be to cut, with each cut the story actually seems to be getting clearer. It feels, at first, as if you are stripping away important details, but in fact what is actually happening is that you are focusing the eye of the audience on what is truly important. It’s really interesting. Not easy, but interesting.

So first it was yellow: tactical large chunks. Now it is orange: more surgical, but still some big pieces. I’m thinking next will be green…those will be the cuts that can’t even fathom doing right now. By the end of this my script will be very colorful indeed.

In any case, the Red Arrow is the only way to move between YYC and YEG, cruising right by each airport on the way. Oh, there’s YEG. Home soon.


Read through the new play one and a half times yesterday with the Edinburgh bound cast of LBHS. Exciting to hear the show in its entirety for the first time. Hoping to have a title by the end of the day. Running time was nearly 2 ours and 20 minutes. As the show needs to run 1 hour and 20 mins there is some major cutting to do…but this is to be expected. Better get to it.


Listened to the cast recording of Saint Aggie’s ’84 this morning. I wrote two scenes for the show yesterday and I’m thinking the two week completion deadline might actually be achievable. I’m going to start on a new song for the show on Monday which I think I’m going to call something like “HOW CAN THINGS BE WORSE THAN THIS?”, about being characters stuck in a musical adaptation of Shakespeare.

Still tweaking the Wheat Pool mixes this morning, but mostly listened to the Saint Aggie’s recording on the run. I will be performing with the cast this evening at the Winspear Centre as part of the Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts. I’ll be playing guitar and although I did write the song, I’ve never actually played it live. So I thought I’d actually better learn the song we’ll be playing. No problem…hopefully. Should be a fun night.

Listened to mixes of the two new Wheat Pool songs we tracked last week a bunch of times on my run this morning. A new original called “Swallow it Whole” and a cover of the Gordon Lightfoot song “Circle is Small”. Some tweaks to address tonight, but sounding pretty good.

I’m going to take a shot from this spot every morning I’m  out on my run. It’s always amazing to see everything come back to life. It happens so quickly. Here are two shots: one from this morning and one from two morning’s ago. Not much change yet…

This is a photo of my daughter Imogen and I. This was taken about a month ago or so.

  • A photo from another world… February 15, 2012
    Here it is. The first glimpse of the next cast of Saint Aggie’s ’84. Yes, the photo is bit grainy and slightly unclear, reminding me a little of a photo from early space exploration, an early moon probe, transmitted back to earth slowly via radio waves and taking hours to receive, decipher and print. Of […]
