No, I am not on Cloud Nine. That, is the name of my college son's play. I'll be flying out to North Carolina to see him in his first college theatre production. Once you've read the play's synopsis, below, you'll understand my trepidation:
CLOUD NINE is about relationships -- between men and women, men and men, women and women. It is about sex, work, mothers, Africa, power, children, grandmothers, politics, money, Queen Victoria and... sex. It unlocks the imagination, liberates the mind, and leaves you weak with laughter.
I'll certainly be weak, for sure, from cringing...
What I've been knitting....
And, I'm making this shawl for my mother-in-law.
Of course this is many years ago when she was a very young woman. I don't think I ever looked that good.
It has been many years since we've last seen each other and I miss her wisdom, her laughter and most of all, how she keeps my husband in line!
This is a photo of one of the last times she visited us here in the States. Oh, and that's my father-in-law in the center, he's way cool too!
Well, I'm off to pack for my brief trip. Wish me luck 'cause how I'm 'spose to handle my son doing a love scene, I'll never know!
Life just seemed so much more simpler when they were young...
