Today was a great day for walking. The temperatures were in the mid 80’s. Cool for this time of year.  I headed in the direction of the White House and the National Mall. Washington is about myth building and tourism, policy making and government, the military, education and history. I was puzzled by the single sign in front of the White House until I realized that although the photo below looks like a protest, it supports Obama's current nuclear treaty negotiations with Russia.

One thing I found remarkable were the number of large union buildings – headquarters of the...

I’m crossing the continent today to attend the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas (LMDA) annual general meeting and conference in Washington DC.  I’ve never been to “DC” and I’m looking forward to it. It’s one of the most storied cities in North America, if for no other reason than it’s the Capitol City of one of the most storied countries on earth.  A great spot for a dramaturgy conference.

The UA flight was bumpy, but I arrived at Ronald Regan National Airport (or National as the citizens of the city prefer to call it) on time. I hadn’t been on the ground for more than...

Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko will visit Vancouver tomorrow as part of their 12-day Canadian tour.  The Emperor hasn't been here since 1953, when he came here on his first visit to a country outside of japan.

In May, Richard and I traveled to Montreal to attend the PACT AGM and Conference. It was an intense and stimulating few days, giving us the chance to connect with our colleagues across the country and spend some time visioning the Future of Canadian Theatre.

The Conference's keynote was Surviving the Culture Change by Diane Ragsdale. You can read her pertinent, thought-provoking message, and find some follow-up discussion from last week's Arts Summit in Vancouver here.

Last weekend, we held our annual summer Hootenanny, and it was a blast! Volunteers, staff, donors, and our creative collaborators all piled into Richard's backyard for a BBQ. It didn't rain, the cats provided much entertainment, there was a rousing game of croquet, there was oodles of food, we polished off a keg of beer and several bottles of wine, and much fun was had by all. The best part was the opportunity to get to know one another a little better. Thanks so much to everyone for coming out and frolicking with us!
