Leo 29° (August 21)
I have two clients again today and also trying to sneak in a bit of book editing. Plus I have to give an interview plus need tosend information to Provincetown magazine. Check on that last item. Today is day one of a full twenty days of a crash course in a certain kind of miracle. We shall see what we shall see. If all goes to play I should be where I want to be. I am taking about fifteen minutes right now to put some things down on paper so to speak. I have the sneaking suspicion that this day will not go according to schedule and that the next few days will also be kind of choppy. I will need to get back on the stick with social media and so forth. And run down my list of Sponsors and go for the jugular with Sparklers. I am going to create a page to which I will the usual characters and paste all the thank yous to everyone who has thus far given. That is the right thing to do for sure. Speaking to journalists today. Anyway, combing through will creat a list of comps and a lst of those who will need passes as well. It is also one job, really. That can happen on Saturday, Sunday and Monday when I will also be transitioning into sample work. I do need to find pianist and right now I have asks out to Drew and Ben. I can maybe also ask Brett, Jaime, Lance (Cruz not Horne for godssake). Well I have my work cut out for myself over the next few days that’s for shittin’ sure. But I’m kind of excited to see what I might be able to affect through sheer mind muscle. I do know this. I’m not a lazy person LOL. I’m really liking what la S. is doing with the Instagram on the other side. We will make magic this coming year on a number of levels. I mean there is so much going on, so much promotion happening. We have books and products and very soon we are going to have a very chic new collection.
I must touch base with the characters at A.R.T. to see if they want to come to Afterglow. I also want to offer some tickets to A.R.T. to the boys we met at the Hovey. The heated pool there will still be open and I cannot wait to return. I will do some summer reviews of pictures on my Insta during the next couple of weeks. The soundtrack of this summer first started with that visit to the Hovey in June was it? Did we go there after our working with A. in Boston. I really enjoy not just working with A. but I actually enjoy the time we spend together. I truly feel that she is going to be family. Okay back to the larger to-do list that is my brain. I need to get on all the artists again to send information. And I am writing yet another blurb to appeal to those who might help us out this year. I think it’s something I can tailor for both Sponsors and Sparklers, we shall see:
The Afterglow Festival is just over two weeks away and we we still several thousand dollars to raise in the lead-up to September 10. As always, Afterglow is bringing the brightest emerging lights in performance, from New York, Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco and beyond. And as we seek to preserve Provincetown’s ironic tradition of being an incubator of the new and progressive in theater and performance, often we are presenting artists that fly quite low under mainstream audiences’ radar. The only way to preserve stage space for important emerging artists is non profit. Stage space like everything else in Provincetown is now real estate that is largely bought and sold. We have lost many smaller donors over the years because people cannot afford to live in Provincetown any longer; while the new (rich and famous) folks moving in aren’t as a rule approachable. So we are hoping that our people like you who have sponsored us over the years will return this year, our ninth annual Afterglow Festival, and help us keep alive the important work we are doing to preserve Provincetown’s cultural history as a century old bastion for performing artists who are destined to make a difference.
Whatever will be will be that much I know. I will also be able to dangle the party in front of people and hopefully gain some support that way. I need to add a tip category for sure to the budget. I am going. Ask Mark when I should be getting the posters. And also ask friends again to tout on social media—check on that—but I’ve yet to see any help on that score. Margie Ella is going to be writing about ten more blocks about places on the website. I am going to add Seaglass to this list. I am going to propose that Drew (if he can do) and a guest come to Provincetown to rehearse as it would be cheaper to pay for their hotel than ours. But we have this lovely stay at the Marlton coming up in November which is a wonderful thing. Here is someting I’m saying to those friends of the festival:
The Ninth Annual Afterglow Festival is just over two weeks away. And we are very proud and privileged to be presenting a roster of artists who are mainly new to Provincetown and the festival. We are planning for a lower turnout that we often enjoy—that’s just one of the ebbs and flows of presenting under-the-radar artists—and are thus focusing more on the tried and true success of our curation. We have introduced scores of performing artists to Provincetown over the years in the face of soaring prices and extreme gentrification of the gilded kind. We have lost many supporters who can no longer afford to live in Provincetown while the numerous rich and famous new residents aren’t readily accessible to us. So please help us get the word out there and create more awareness for Afterglow this year. Doing so will help us audience build and, who knows, maybe even tempt some new supporters of the non-profit. It’s going to be a thrilling festival filled to overflowing with artistry and activism as e’er the twain shall meet at Afterglow!
Thanks once again for your time and attention.
Sending love and appreciation,
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree pointof the Sabian Symbol will be one degree higher than the one listed for today. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period. There are 360 degrees spread over 365 or 6 days per year—so they near but not exactly correlate.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go!
