Day by Day

I’ve been the musical director and pianist for Fantastiks (my first), The Boyfriend, Once Upon a Mattress, Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Pageant, Man of La Mancha, Anything Goes (twice), and Godspell. Godspell is definitely my favorite, as the songs “fit” my fingers, and I enjoyed playing with just a drummer and guitarist. Whilst I love the song Day by Day, All Good Things is (you guessed it) my favorite songs from the musical.

It’s a beautiful day in Asheville, even as anxiety has begun to somewhat overwhelm me. I seldom have problems falling and/or staying asleep. The past three nights have been tumultuous. It doesn’t help that our federal government is failing us. Miserably.

I made banana + blackberry muffins. So freaking good. I’m making 15-bean soup. It’s unlikely Jeff will eat a single bit.


I was very artistic as a child, and at one time imagined myself becoming a cartoonist. St. Joseph’s held an art contest each year, and I won every year I entered. Unused billboards were often donated to the school, and we often used the oversized paper for art projects. One year I drew a life-sized dragon based on a song we often sang, The Reluctant Dragon. “I’m a reluctant dragon. What else. Quite so. Instead of work I’d rather play. Here we go gathering nuts and hay. Silly as the month of May.” I may not be recalling the lyrics correctly, but you get the drift. I can still easily recall and draw the Reluctant Dragon. 


Yesterday was pushing, today was pulling. And running. Running!

16 RFT
5 strict and unbroken C2B pull-ups
Run 200m

Sixteen rounds = 2 miles, yo. This took a little over 30 minutes, and I loved every minute of it. No failed reps and all rounds in unbroken and strict reps. Because that’s what I programmed.
