Backstage Travels

All the world's a stage…

Missing stuff.

on November 24, 2012

I’ve complained about quite a few things about ship life lately, but there is one thing that sticks out and is happening over and over again. I keep missing stuff.

My cousin and his wife just had twins after trying for 6 years. For me, they are growing up on facebook and my iMessage. (Growing up=they are 5 weeks old almost…I’m exaggerating a bit.) Same with Frank’s sister’s little girl who just turned 1.

Obviously Thanksgiving just passed, and I almost forgot it was coming. No such luck with Christmas, we’ve already started making it snow on the ship, and we’re starting tech rehearsals for the Christma–ahem…Holiday Show soon. I think they’re allowed to call it a “holiday show” because there’s a dreidel in it.

My little brother is going to be in his school’s production of Midsummer’s Night Dream.

And now, I’ve just heard that one of my professors from university, and pretty much the founder of my department at the university, Brother Augustine Towey has passed away.  The full obituary is here: [link]

Makes you appreciate the stuff when you’re there.
