I have to say after spending the last two weekends running down to Salt Lake spending a weekend(a four day weekend at that) at my new home has been a challenge so far. It doesn't help that November 5th is Mackens birthday which always makes me sad for several reasons. Macken passed away a few years ago. She was the second theatre person I had worked with to pass. I don't know if I have talked about her before but Macken was the set designer on the first show I designed at the U. She guided me though the show not so much my words or actions but a knowing look that she would shoot at me while I was working on the show. It seemed to say your not hear as a fluke you know how to so this get it down. Thanks Macken for guiding me on that show.
