I have TWO Yuletide gifts! Both in Slings and Arrows, both absolutely wonderful.

First, We'll Strive to Please You Every Day. Geoffrey teaches a Shakespeare workshop to students! Viola is in love with Olivia, teenagers discover Shakespeare for the first time, and ANNA gets the moment of knowing what Shakespeare is like, the moment when the swirly music comes on and people suddenly understand. There are tangled romances offstage that mirror the action onstage, and moments when the actors' minds open up - and best of all, Anna gets to be brave and smart and insightful.

And second, A Halting Sonnet of His Own. Geoffrey teaches a relationship seminar! Beautiful insight into characters both onstage and off - and again, people discover themselves through Shakespeare, and gain better understandings of themselves and their love. And...holy cow, they named the main female character Becky, and Geoffrey wants her to play Beatrice. Author, are you one of my friends?

It was a wonderful way to wake up. Merry Christmas to all! May your day be filled with light and love and discovery. Or Chinese food. Or all of the above :)
