This is a really neat article about Broadway producers.

Take time to read What does a Broadway Producer do? Over 100 Producers respond.

The article can be found at THE PRODUCER\’S PERSPECTIVE

A producer is a rare, paradoxical genius: hard-headed, soft-hearted, cautious, reckless, a hopeful innocent in fair weather, a stern pilot in stormy weather, a mathematician who prefers to ignore the laws of mathematics and trust intuition, an idealist, a realist, a practical dreamer, a sophisticated gambler, a stage-struck child.  That’s a producer.

– Oscar Hammerstein II

“I dreamed a dream, a silent dream of a land not far away where no bird sang, no steeples rang, and teardrops fell like rain.

I dreamed a dream; a silent dream. I dreamed a dream of a land so filled with pride that every song, both weak and strong, withered and died.

I dreamed a dream – No hallelujah; not one hosanna! No song of love, no lullaby.

And no choir sang to change the world. No pipers played, no dancers twirled. I dreamed a dream; a silent dream.

Awake, awake! Soli deo gloria! Awake, Awake!

Awake my soul and sing, the time for praise has come. The silence of the night has passed, a new day has begun!

Let music never die in me; forever let my spirit sing!

Wherever emptiness is found let there be joy and glorious sound.

Let music never die in me; forever let my spirit sing!

Let all our voices join as one to praise the giver of the sun!

Awake, awake!

Let music live!”

By Joseph M. Martin

Sometime before the sun was scheduled to rise, the rain began, coming down pretty hard. When Jose left for school at 7:45am, I could hear it pounding on the deck outside my bedroom window. Finally, at 9:10am, it has subsided. The skies are grey, and the wind blowing steadily. The backyard, however, is beautiful with a lush green; the tree branches, heavy with moisture, bow low.

I have about ten emails that require my response, and am waiting on several more to confirm items before I can respond to the ones already waiting on my response.

I have several things to prepare for this week, and must get moving.

Storms are likely throughout the day, but we are assured that there will be moments throughout the day when the sunshine will peak through!
