Over the past few days, I have watched Sabrina, War and Peace, A Nun’s Story and, Love in the Afternoon, with Gary Cooper. I can recommend the final scene as wonderful sinus therapy. Me: sobbing with a pile of napkins (tissues gone). Cats: “have we done something wrong?”
I had the pleasure of meeting a young man who attends the The St Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts. The occasion was to shoot head shots. Can you say do-over??!! My space limitations are apparent and I am looking forward to the “big move” at the end of the month!
Happily, there are alternatives to shopping malls and ‘big box’ retail experiences in the Twin Cities. I have blogged about one such place, Practical Goods. Today I dropped by Sophie Joe’s Emporium. SJE is chock full of vintage and designer clothing, jewelry, art, dishware, ornaments, toys, tchotchkes…well, you get the idea. I found some lovely frames that will work well for photographs-
While checking out, I met a young man browsing with his mom. He turned out to be Connor Barth, the 13 year old actor touring with the national road company of Elf the Musical. Connor plays Michael, Elf’s human brother. According to his bio, Connor has “been singing and dancing his whole life and performing in front of audiences for 3 years.” Regionally he has performed in Teddy & Alice in the role of Roosevelt’s son, Archie. We had a brief chat and I learned he is having fun with the tour experience. 🙂
