I made it back to Orange St. School for a second of two shows, this time the 1st and 2nd graders. They were a lively bunch, much more lively than the teachers, who had a case of the Last Monday in February Blues. They were dragging.
In fact, I was draggin’, too. But the wonder of my art is, I can count on the kids, and the challenge of playing with them (250 today), and appeal to the teachers, too, make the time go fast.
My thanks to Arlene ( from Camp Happiness, a summer camp for special needs kids) for helping me get this gig. She works in this school with similarly challenged kids.
I was quite embarrassed when I was there earlier this month. My business contact for C. Happiness is Terri V. But my on the job contact has been Arlene, and I assume she was Terry. I somehow didn’t know they were two separate women.
In the assembly I referred to A as Terri, and the whole room looked at me, “Whoops…” I was quite humbled, and admitted so. But Arlene greeted me at the door today with a smile. She’s a kind-hearted woman…
