Here is a picture I came across,
My role was of "Mom" and I was living
on the rez with a baby girl who was brain
damaged from lack of oxygen when she
fell in the water while my alcoholic
mother was watching her. I end up
killing myself after a car accident
and years of addiction. I found
someone to take care of my baby
before I checked out.

I was once the lead in this play called "House of Wives"
it was interesting because Josh was in "Yerma" that same semester.
"Yerma" is Lorca's tale of a barren woman whose husband is
horrible to her over her inability to bear his child.
"House of Wives" is Gallier's tale of a barren woman
whose husband takes a second and third wife to have
the sons she cannot bear.

I was the lead "Taos" in "House of Wives" and I at the time
believed myself to be infertile. I was able to bring
truth to that role and have recently been thinking about
Taos as I am now diagnosed as having secondary infertility.
The link for that (which may or may not work) is

I miss acting. I think perhaps I will look for a
project to do this summer or for the fall.

I almost forgot, six pounds down...
