Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else


I’m having a wonderful time in Philly, visiting with Trillian Stars and the cats, meeting fabulous new creative people, getting better acquainted with the Ukrainian community here. The Ukrainian League of Philly used to be a jail complete with sniper windows and a mysterious bricked up archway in the basement! I’ll upload pics later tonight, but here’s one of the old freezer door:

Just got back from an amazing breakfast at Marrakesh, with Trillian Stars,  Alex, and Shveta (whom I will see again at WisCon, yay!). Now we’re off to my reading/signing at the Ukrainian League of Philadelphia, at the corner of 23rd and Brown Streets in Philadelphia, 2-3pm. You’re all invited if you’re in the neighborhood. There will be coffee and sweets following the reading.

This evening I will get to see Trillian Stars in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at the Curio Theatre. Previews are tonight and the show runs through the middle of May. Go see it if you can. They sold out last night. For previews! It’s THAT good.
