I swear my hippy parents did not put me up to this. It was completely voluntary.

It's unseasonably warm these days. So people tell me--not having many Fall Turning to Winters to compare it to, I'm no expert; but this 60 degree Saturday was a good day for the park.

And a FABULOUS day for the Nutcracker. I loved it.

I came home and immediately began rehearsals......in great earnest. (This is my "I'm very emotional about this" face.)
