July 17, 2016
Jonathan asleep downstairs, Maud, evicted from her sleeping space, curled up on my foot. Family visitation yesterday, showing off the pond and the ravages of the flower-mowers. L looks better and happier than she ever has in her life. Barbecue lunch, much chit-chat, J and L a couple who seem perpetually to fulfill each other, each after a disastrous first marriage. All came to see the show last night, as did Adam down from New York. Everyone says they liked it, and I suppose that is the truth. Last night was not my best performance, but there were no flubs, so I am content. Getting weary, though, and this afternoon’s matinee marks only the half way point. Late food and beer at a local Waynesville watering hole, which I am glad to know about. One of my former students works there, and she was gratifyingly enthusiastic about my presence.
