working with funny people
thank whatever power you believe in for funny people. Funny in a good way -- easy going, quick-witted, generous, self-deprecating but still proud and professional -- these are the kinds of people you want to work with.
This is a shot of two of them: Karin and Evalyn; with their third partner Anna they have a theatre group called Independent Auntie. See their shows. Don't think too much, just go. They amaze me.
in other news, Bea and I managed to pick up a one-year pilot grant for operating funds for her (well, our) company, Aluna Theatre. Suddenly there is a visible future. A whole lot of uncertainty has dissolved for us: we know what we will be doing for a good deal of our time for the next year. Just like that. Uncertainty is a negative thing: you don't see it as a haze before your eyes or anything. But it really feels like a fog has lifted when you get that kind of news.
