I have this fantasy about being able to lift into the air and float away above the hills and look down on the world as though it was a railroad set.
I dreamed I was looking around in this Camelot-like atmosphere at Sun Valley [the local shopping mall] and I was trying to decide which garden was the most ____ (industrial or something like that. I know there was a word but I can’t remember what it was). We were looking for places where there are nude women (YWCA).
I read about indians before I went to bed.
I dreamed that there was sand on the deck by the sliding glass door and Jinx, Paul and I went out and molded little rivers in it and the soup from inside the house ran down the rivers and we ate it. There were indians.
Under Milkwood [Dylan Thomas’ play which my family used to have regular readings of] was a success. After we read it we joked around until 11:30 and the best way to describe the noise we were making is “Oh what will the neighbors say, what will the neighbors say”.
[Uncle] Larry’s friend Mark is a really neat person.
Little Prince cast
Me front & center, youngest in cast, I think.
Can't remember who that is on the left behind Anna & Laurel, the Scholar in the middle (feel I should know that one), or who played the Mechanic (Dan Wilson's older brother, a little voice in the back of my head says, but could be dead wrong) or the Flock of Birds on the right.
Wait, I think that's Sybil Lockhart as The Scholar and Alice Lockhart in the tiara as the character I totally forget.
No, I'm wrong, now I think that's Sara Weinstein in the tiara.
Confirmed it's Sara & Sybil
We are roses from the garden, here to introduce the play…
Love that costume my Mum made, eh?
Over 3 decades and I still remember the start of our big line.
That's my friend Wendy Scripps on the right. Lost touch with her later when she grew up a lot faster than I was ready to keep pace with.
I am informed on the reunion list that that's Shelly Snyder in the middle
One of the "big kids" I really liked.
My school was kindergarten through 12 grade and there were never more than 80 students total. I went to those 6 acres of learning for all but my senior year of high school.
Mike, Dov, Steve
Mike was my best pal Rick's big brother. Dov was, as I recall, one of the kids I liked. Steve drowned tragically before graduating.
[Is that my mum in the background?]
awww, The Little Prince & The Fox
Laurel Fletcher (Rick's big sister) and Diedra Kenney
[This is just a wild guess as to what month and year this happened, made as I post these to the blog in 2014.]
[One more Pinel item of unknown date:]

My mother wrote down the song/poem I was singing to myself at age four and pinned it up in our hallway. [That evidence of early creativity and my family's support for it remained in view there for 30 years]
I thought I planned
A magic wand,
A wand, a wand, a magic wand
But what I wanted was a dawn
But they cannot know when
Because they're not my friends.
The little ones run from side to side
Lie down here, lie down there,
And where, where, where.
Then it is the end.
Then I said I'll go to bed.
