WONDERFUL production!! First-class acting and singing all-around. Simple yet beautiful stage design and lighting, really captured the emotion of the moment. Also, we were blown away by the big feel of the small stage...everyone in our group had seen The Fantasticks more than a couple of times in bigger cities, bigger productions.
I don't think the actors missed one cue, word or note. Choreography was excellent. Pianist and harpist were really amazing. Thank you all for a job well done!! This is a fabulous way to spend two and a half hours. Two thumbs up from all of us!!

I had the chance to read the letter that went out to friends re: this disaster and it touched my heart deeply. I can't remember the last time I'd even come close to reading something so powerfully written by someone who'd witnessed the destruction of something they'd loved so deeply. I really got how grateful they were that everyone survived juxtaposed with the deep sorrow and love for what they'd lost. Still, their general attitude was of acknowledging impermanence, Mother Nature and the optimistic long road ahead. My hat's off to you, Quail Springs community, and I am committed to helping out while you rebuild!! I've heard some of our mutual friends say with so much love and appreciation that you're a jewel and a light for them. I hope you feel this now and continue to feel this as you build your dreams anew.

I absolutely adore your articles. I was explaining your writing style to my sister in Philly and she said, "she sounds like Erma Bombeck" and I totally agreed. I was a step-mom for 5.5 years (her first Mom died when she was five) and I felt that I got a good idea of what it's like to be a Mom. She still calls me Mom and we still see eachother at least once a year. I feel like parenting teaches us so many things that people that have no children could never buy: patience, versatility, letting go, reflection of self, not making mountains out of mole hills, being effective, managing time wisely, to name a few. We have no children of our own but when we spend time with our nieces and nephews, we are totally present and connected. Not being life-obligated allows us to be more detached about the "shoulds" that we might have otherwise. I sometimes wonder if I'll regret it when I'm older. I keep re-committing to actively staying in touch and making sure that I'm including them and our extended family in holiday planning instead of waiting to be included. I ultimately made a choice to be more for the world than for my own family. Both sides have equal pros and cons, I think, and both sides involve sacrifice. Such is the yin/yang balance of life!! I consciously choose it everyday.

This is so great!! I lovingly request that you re-word your use of "victim" and replace it with "survivor". I would also like to suggest that the Indy run an ad (when you have free space to do so), "Remodeling? Please consider donating your furnishings to Fire Survivors. Post your ad for free in our classifieds." Does this sound feasible?

This is wonderful!!! Thank you for taking a stand for the dogs that fall through the cracks and for setting a fine example for our community. SO great. I hope that other cities will be inspired by your stand, as well ;o)

We go there a few times a year and it's ALWAYS very good. I've never had a bad experience there, in the 20 years I've lived here. Yes, it's touristy and there are PLENTY of other places to go but they've always been consistent and their outdoor seating is a plus.

YAY!!!! Such a great idea. LONG overdue, IMO. If you're worried about money (not) coming into IV, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of students to refuse to adhere to this law and $$$ will be made in the form of ticketing offenders on the beach. No shortage of other places to drink in IV. This is not a long-term problem.
Deaths, injuries, beach trash and environmental damage definitely are, though.

I totally agree. Reading your articles is always a blast!! You're not afraid to act like a dork sometimes, which really fosters a feeling of camaraderie. I am very adept at acting like a dork. I laugh alot ;o)
