Love to Hear from You

Just saying “Hi” again to the person who runs this site. My favorite two musicals are “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Man of La Mancha.” The first is a big favorite because when I was a kid we had the record in my house and I used to listen to it over and over again. Then I saw the musical with “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” in it, and the love and tragedy of the Jewish people hit me. I have since converted, but this musical was my first connection with the Jewish people outside of the Bible itself.

My second favorite musical is “Man of La Mancha” which I saw for the first time in my teens. I love the figure of Don Quixote, jousting at windmills. I have always believed fiction is the tug-of-war between the world as it is and the world as it ought to be, and “The Impossible Dream” is my song. I am a writer by profession, and I am sure there are people who believe I live in “a world that can’t be” just by insisting that my writing comes first in absolutely every way.
