Two Girls has been on hiatus for a year. Gina and I are both tackling our most challenging role to date: "Mom".

I admire women (and men) who have done it and continue to participate in their art. Lack of sleep alone has me hallucinating and forgetting myself.

I am thinking about putting Rosie back up if it jives with the show we are planning to do.

There must be something valuable about these days too: hearing your daughter's voice for the first time, having a late night discussion with your husband, seeing a good art show or theatre performance (or a bad one), or just a safe place for those insecurities and failures that creep up to land. And so, you may be hearing from me now and again. For now, meet Amelia...
