After Jane Booth’s Show


I don’t know if I’m posting this to reveal how short I am (5’8″), or how tall Jane Booth is (6′).  But to be fair to meself, she’s in heels, I’m barefoot, and it doesn’t matter anyway.  Besides, my sons are still convinced I’m 6’2″.  Good. 

What’s plain is that I’m exhausted at the end of her opening night, and what was a very long day for me.  My wife and I had dinner with friends afterward, starting at 10:00.  I still don’t know how I stayed awake.  Yeah I do: caffeine.

This is one of my favorite pieces from Jane’s show.  Note her smile, and essence of youthful joy.  That comes through in her abstractions too, at least when it’s meant to.
