There’s that beautiful weather I’ve been waiting forT3

Mon, 20 Jul 2009 21:04:12 +0000

Friday night a few friends and I planned a get-together at Central Park for the annual free concert by the New York Philharmonic in Central Park. But alas, the pending rain and ridiculous humidity scared us all away. With my late-afternoon free (I swore to myself that, come hell or high water I would quit […](image)

Oh, to be FrenchT3swimmingbeach

Mon, 13 Jul 2009 20:58:46 +0000

My “great European adventure” has been blessed and wonderful for so many reasons, and certainly, the French Riviera was the perfect way to end a whirlwind 16 day vacation. First of all, Nice is beautiful (really, the whole French coast is). Second, the food was delicious. Third, the weather was absolutely perfect (hot in the […](image)

I think I have an issue with Olympic host citiesT3proseccoitaly

Mon, 13 Jul 2009 20:23:52 +0000

It might not be a fair assumption, but it certainly is my personal observation: I think that the Olympics sometimes have a negative effect on host cities after the hoopla of having the games has ended. I felt this way after leaving Atlanta, Georgia, six or seven years ago (I have since returned and experienced […](image)

A picture is worth a thousand wordsT3mountains

Thu, 09 Jul 2009 20:29:46 +0000

If a picture is worth a thousand words, than the photo above might best describe my three days in Leukerbad, Switzerland, a natural spring spa resort in the Swiss Alps. Absolutely stunning. And relaxing and peaceful and happy. And surprisingly, fairly reasonable in terms of price (given that this is considered an “off season” for […](image)

Swimming in Evian bottled waterT3tedriver

Mon, 06 Jul 2009 17:09:49 +0000

I have absolutely fallen in love with Zurich. I find it to be one of the most quaint, beautiful and relaxed cities in all of Europe, if not the world. There’s something about the pace and energy of this city that suits me quite well—the fact that you are in a major metropolitan area, coupled […](image)

Almost ate a sausage in GermanyT3germany

Sun, 05 Jul 2009 08:00:24 +0000

Almost. But then this vegetarian chickened out, or was just really afraid of what the effects of such a stupid act might be on the body. Still, my whirlwind tour through Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich, Germany, was a nice surprise–the people lovely, the cities beautiful and the wine…well, that was one for one (the nasty […](image)

Biking past castles and swimming in dirty canalsT3swimming

Tue, 30 Jun 2009 07:38:41 +0000

As we made our way throughout these tiny, tiny villages in Holland yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice my breathe again. And while I understand that to many it might sound cheesy, for myself it was a personal reminder that I forget to really do that in New York, when I’m engulfed in the hustle […](image)

Sat, 27 Jun 2009 23:29:18 +0000

After a three hour weather delay on the runway of JFK Airport in New York and a rather bumpy flight through some lightning storms, with the help of a little Xanex and a glass of white wine, I made it to the Netherlands, or the Nederlands, or however you wish to spell it. And while […](image)

Smile, dammnit: 400 versus 17T3DSC00048

Wed, 17 Jun 2009 19:06:53 +0000

There’s something about “being back into it” that I really love–the excitement of the unexpected (see previous post) that comes with living in New York City. I feel like I’m never here, and while in many cases that is literally true, I am grateful for the weeks and weekends like the one I’m currently in […](image)

Things I know, things in limbo, and a comment on unpredictabilityT3

Sun, 14 Jun 2009 23:33:57 +0000

Writing on my blog seems to be a bi-weekly thing these days, and I am sorry for it–sorry for myself, most of all. I miss the daily rantings that I used to go on about whatever unimportant thing was going on in my life in a specific instance. But these days, with hopping planes every […](image)

Running from rattlesnakes and eating potato chip sandwichesT3robbiechipsandwichdeerheadhillcity

Sun, 31 May 2009 04:25:51 +0000

An odd combination of ideas, I know, but within a two hour time frame today, both were realities of my first full day on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. I’m in South Dakota now, working at Red Cloud Indian School to do some planning for the next fiscal year, and to kick-off some projects that […](image)

Reasons to fall in love with the city againT3cityrollerblades

Wed, 27 May 2009 17:37:28 +0000

I was supposed to go out of town for Memorial Day Weekend, perhaps to Connecticut or even to the Hamptons. Instead, with the beautiful weather that showered New York City, alas, we decided to stay in Manhattan and just enjoy all that the city has to offer. Friday night was a killer birthday celebration for […](image)

Saying goodbye by running around laughing and lifting up your dressT3tedbrynnhallecakefamilyhalleunderoos

Tue, 26 May 2009 22:20:28 +0000

With the fact that I seem to hop an airplane every week these days for my company, and I am actually taking honest-to-god true weekends for play and leisure (when humanly possible), I have neglected my dear blog. Never fear, I think of it often and have lots of posts to catch everyone up on […](image)

Well, there went my summer…T3

Thu, 14 May 2009 20:15:45 +0000

On Saturday, I begin about two months of traveling again and I’m pretty damn stoked about it, to be honest. My friend Leia wrote the other day, “But you’re going to miss the summer in the city.” And while this might be a bit true, I’m looking at it this way: I’m going to come […](image)

Fri, 08 May 2009 20:14:34 +0000

I think I probably made a fool of myself yesterday morning at an audition for a reputable regional theatre when I was thrown into a chorus call for a heavy tap show because the scheduled audition time I had I couldn’t make due to another, already-scheduled audition. This means that I had to “dance to […](image)

DesireT3

Sun, 03 May 2009 13:48:19 +0000

Yesterday, a last minute “Hey, let’s go to a play tonight” found me walking over to the St. James Theatre and nabbing two orchestra center tickets to DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS on Broadway, the new Eugene O’Neill play starring Brian Dennehy, Carla Gugino and Pablo Schrieber. In. A. Word. Magnificent. Beautiful. Stunning. And. By. Far. […](image)

Fri, 01 May 2009 22:17:16 +0000

…um, yea. I’m all over the map these days. Truly. On Tuesday, I got a call from a client of mine suggesting that I needed to meet him and a colleague up north for a few days of planning. I laughed and kinda sorta really ignored it. Then I got another. And another. And then, […](image)

No such thing as a free lunchT3gourmet

Thu, 16 Apr 2009 02:51:35 +0000

Last Saturday, I spent a good hour in the Borders at Columbus Circle with my friend Dmi reading magazines and sipping on a way-too-sugary Italian soda when I came across something on the newsstands that I in some direct or indirect way contributed to: an article in the current Gourmet Magazine on Red Cloud Indian […](image)

A hidden gem in the NYC: The QuadT3

Mon, 13 Apr 2009 00:17:06 +0000

I have a new love. For foreign films. It’s so strange, because years ago, when they were as accessible to me as a Starbucks in Gainesville (they were free to me as an actor at The Hippodrome Theatre, where they showed foreign features often), I never went. Well, okay, perhaps not never. But less than […](image)

It’s me. Mwah. I spent a very lovely three days this past weekend in Miami chillaxin’ on the beach in 86 degree weather and nothing but sunny blue skies and really warm, clear, and some days ,really wavy water. It was, um, how shall I describe it? Perfect. I also got to eat some fantastic […](image)
