Almost A Missed Opportunity
John Cariani, author of Almost, Maine, which is being staged in Syracuse, came to a local school to run writing and performing workshops. I happened to be in attendance and he was phenomenal. His inspiration on the kids, and the inspiration he received from the kids, were obvious. It was a magical three hours.
As karma would have it, he also happened to be a friend of my advisor at SU from high school. They invited me to lunch and I got to hear more about his plays, their adolescent years, and his new learning of teaching. I felt very fortunate that my TGIF turned out to be a memorable day.
