Life Goes On

Well, there went January. Jeez, the time is flying. All quiet in the D'Onofrio/Halladay household. I am getting ready physically and mentally to endure the rehearsal period for Talk Radio. So, looking forward to it. Can't stop thinking about all the devastation in Haiti. I have made donations and hope you all do to. I was in the Northridge Earthquake back in the 90's. It was like a war zone. Our condo was inhabitable and we had to move away from beautiful Calabasas to deeper in the San Fernando Valley. It was very scary. Especially all the aftershocks, but not even close to the death toll and devastation in Haiti. It all sure makes one think about how bad life can actually get, and how lucky we are to be just enduring a recession. Life is too short, to ponder on the bad luck we have all had to live with in the last 10 years. Lets move forward by helping others in need and redirecting our lifestyles to fit in with the times. Do what you can to help and let life go on graciously.

It's so nice to have my family with us this month. My step-daughters, Alicia and Chantal and my son Hawk. Music fills the house along with unconditional love and care. So nice to be able to enjoy the kids before I have to put my nose back to the grindstone. A lot of work on the play, Talk Radio awaits me in February. I got a great cast and am so excited about putting up Eric Bogosian's play for March. It's so funny that I was asked to direct this play, with Eric working with my brother, and Eric's son befriending my son in NYC. It's a small small world. Life is starting out good in 2010. Still just getting by, but at least doing what I love and having my loved ones near. It's all about a good family base that supports you in your endeavors. Without my husband and kids support, It would be much harder for me to find the strength and time to do what I got to do. Love is great. I wish the same for all my readers. Your great, and thanks for all the support and well wishes you have given me and my family.

New Year 2010

Wow! Things are already looking up professionally in the new year. I was asked to direct, Eric Bogosian's play, Talk Radio for a local theater company in Fort Myers for March 11th opening. Then another play here on the beach in April. My classes are going well with a nice size attendance and my marriage is wonderful. Also, got to start planning for my annual New York City Workshop in June. My son will be here next week for ten whole days. Wooo Weee! Can't wait. Lots of music will be heard throughout our little beach shack from my stepdaughters singing, my son on guitar, and my husband on piano. I am holding auditions for "Talk Radio" this Sunday at 4pm at the Sydney Berne Davis Art Center in Fort Myers. So local talent please come out. We are looking for 3 or 4 women and 7 or 8 men. Looking forward to finding my talent. Hope you all have a prosperous new year. In the acting process we don't make it happen, we let it happen, but in life and business you must make it happen. That is my New Years Resolution. Making it Happen!
