Back Home

For the past couple of weeks, I have been home from school, not having to worry about school work and just being able to relax. That, of course, will change in a couple of days when I leave to go down to San Antonio for spring training and tour for the summer with the Crossmen.

Last weekend was my old high school's musical production weekend. The past two years I participated by playing in the pit for The Wizard of Oz and Into The Woods. This year, I had the opportunity to just sit and the audience and enjoy the performance. When I first saw that they were doing Little Women a couple of months ago, at first I was skeptical (much like I was my sophomore year with Little Shop of Horrors), however after seeing the musical, I greatly enjoyed it and thought that it was a good performance and a very good musical.

For those of you who have read the book or know the story of Little Women, you can probably figure out what is happening in the following clip, one of the songs, probably my favorite, from the musical, "Some Things Are Meant To Be". This, I believe, is from the Broadway production (which only ran for 137 performances, a VERY short time considering how many shows run for over 1,000, and 20 over 2,500 currently).

That sounds like a fun piano part. I'll have to see if I can find it.

I got about halfway through the book a month or so ago, then got bored. As I recall, I put it aside to read a philosophy book or something like that (yes, I have strange taste in what's boring). I'll have to see if I can get the rest of the way through it this summer.
