My toes are dangling over the edge and I’m trying very hard to avert my eyes from the abyss of insanity yawning before me like an inevitable next step!
As time (and by “time”, I mean “every minute in the day”) is limited, I’ll summarize that chaos as succinctly as I can, namely in pictures. My life for the past several weeks has been given over to “Candlelight Dinner Mania”…and it’s not going to improve until our three performances are over at the end of this week. There are too many details to really keep track of, but it’s SO much fun too! Here’s just a snapshot of things to come:
Since it would just be wrong to take on one challenge at a time, I decided that it would be a great idea to set TODAY as a deadline for sending my newest novel to the publisher. Yup. I’m insane. So I got up at 7 this morning and spent six hours propped up in bed giving it one last review, then took a DEEP breath and clicked “send”. It’s out there now–there’s no taking it back! And it’s officially titled “Shards of Shell” because, frankly, there’s no better title for the story! Stay tuned for release dates, etc…
In true Korean fashion, Christine ended the evening fast asleep. Or maybe she was just trying to avoid the topics we were discussing…not sure! But isn’t she the absolute CUTEST when she’s sleeping??
That’s it for now. I’ll have many more pictures to share by the time a total of about 1,000 people have seen the Candlelight Dinner this week (that’s 450 on Wednesday night’s BFA edition, then about 400 on each of the official nights). Until then–pray that the cold brewing in my sinuses won’t linger (I’m supposed to sing during the show–which is ridiculous when I’m also directing and producing it…what was I THINKING??). Most importantly, please pray that the whimsical program, a star-enchanted fantasy, will not only entertain our guests but also provoke serious thought. The purpose of so many months of preparations is to reveal a side of God that is pertinent and engaging for our unbelieving German guests, and all the quality performances in the world will amount to nothing if that’s not achieved.
