Exerpt from a Life

April 5,1974
Mango and I did a play to "Smile Song." (Flip-side of "In the Midnight Hour")
It starts out, Mango is alone in the room. She is in a mentally disturbed institution. She is always isolated. She is very sad. Then her aunt comes to visit her. Her aunt doesn't like her as she is disturbed. The girl (Mango)is very happy to have a visitor. (I play the aunt) In the play I'm bored so I just leave. Its supposed to be really sad. In my opinion (not very modestly) its quite good. I'm very proud of it. "Smile Song" is played during the whole thing. No talking. Only the aunt keeps on asking herself outloud why the little girl is so happy.

Sounds entertaining and thought provoking. Then I read the date and was even more amazed that it came from years ago. Very interesting. I like the idea of moving through time like that in a blog. Great idea.
