5.25.02 Lucy Captures Rochester
The premiere of my folk video LUCY took place at a parents-as-partners meeting on Thursday. It's always a worry, exposing yourself to a demanding public. They might have been polite: a few restrained compliments, next! Or they might have been feisty: who are you to speak for us? But instead they were effusive. "It's SO parent-friendly," one of the agency's toughest critics said. A parent said, "That's EXACTLY how it is!" and the parent next to her nodded. An administrator headed for a conference out in Oregon snatched it up to take with her.
I couldn't have felt better if I'd won an Oscar. Now I'm wondering, what next?
