N.B.: This is my second post of two today.

Yesterday I started work on the closing number for the musical I’m writing about the concentration camp Terezin. My brilliant lyricist gave me a lyric that contained lines like:

And if the sun should blacken,
That would seem like justice.

and

In all the idiotic beauty of the world,
How do I find a way to live?

So after spending all day writing music that had to express definitively the meaning of the Holocaust, I went to cheerleading practice and jumped up and down and shouted “Here we go! Cheer loud! Cheer proud! The leader of the crowd!”

Sometimes I kind of love my life.

    Is it just me or has SFLIM gone through a redecoration process?

    I wanted to add some lyrics from my musical adaptation of The Diary Of Anne Frank:

    Don’t cry for me Adolf Hitler
    The truth is you never spooked me
    All through my hiding days
    My meek existence
    I kept my chin up
    Prayed for resistance
