I had an eventful Easter Sunday.
The Theatre Department at Lander University, in Greenwood, SC, put up an evening of Student Directed One-Act Plays — and they held a Sunday matinee.
Senior Nik Blocker directed one of mine, Responsibility.
I went to the show. It was a bit of a drive, but

Yesterday, I played an online April Fool’s joke.
I asked Alicia to take a picture of me in the yard. I called the dog and the chicken over. The chicken did not obey, so Alicia sort of herded it in my direction.
And she took the picture.
I slapped on a a picture

I wrote this little play for the Lee Street 10 minute play festival. The guidelines requested a comedy with the theme Yard Sale. Alas, the period of suspense has ended and this script was not picked. Which gives me the opportunity to share it here
The picture here is my front yard

A week ago, my friend Buddy Snider passed away, and it broke my heart.
Buddy grew up next to the City Park tennis courts. Boyd Gilman lived across the street. That was like my second neighborhood, where I hung out all summer and most days after school. In the summers, my parents would

After making juice this morning, prior to stirring and pouring out, I thought it deserved a picture, or two.
It was so beautiful!
In the picture on the left, there’s a bottom layer of green — spinach, lemon, orange, apple, and cucumber.
Then there’s the beet — an overpowering deep red that, moments

Last night I went to a late movie at Concord Mills, sat in a nearly empty theatre, and saw a movie that certainly has no equal in film.
Richard Linklater spent twelve years shooting “Boyhood.” Ellar Coltrane, who plays Mason, is seven years old in the first scene. He’s nineteen at the

In 1994, just before Christmas, I embarrassed myself, just a little, at Maya Angelou’s house.
She had made a great big, delicious lasagna for her students, and I served myself a large portion.
“That’s too much, Mr. Post,” she said. “You don’t need to eat that much.”
She was right. I put some

We have chickens, and although they are nearing the end of their laying careers, we still get more eggs than Alicia and I can eat (In recent weeks I’ve been having smoothies instead of eggs for breakfast).
So we have an ample supply of eggs and today I embarked on boiling a dozen.

No, I was pleasantly AMAZED at Jenny Lee Wright’s one woman show — A Narcissistic Evening of neurotic behavior at Spoken Space Theatre tonight.
It was a FULL show — polished and well-prepared — and kept the house alive with loud, authentic laughter throughout.
This was a premier, and one night

I wrote Love Poem in the 90’s, when we were doing the 9×9@9 shows at Theatre Charlotte.
Since that time, it’s been produced several times in 10 minute play festivals. At one point, I thought I would shoot it. And I’ve had a number of requests from people in this country and others
