I just got the last arrangement done of Fire and Ice, two and a half years after I first set out to make-there-be-music such that other people could hear how it's supposed to go.

Seventeen songs, people. And in a couple of weeks, the contests open (and one closes again after three weeks): the big-name contests of the music theatre world, with money and prestige and recognition attached, almost always won by men (and teams of men at that). To coin a phrase, if I can make it there, I can make it anywhere. The best-known contest requires 45 minutes of music submitted with an entry - and I have 56 minutes.

There's everything-else happening in the last few weeks, with high drama, huge emotions from Sylvana, a resumption of the land search, and all the late-spring grubbing a girl could ask for. But I can't begin to get a handle on it, so I'll leave it at this: I shared The Princess Bride with Sylvana, and it was awesome.

*crosses all the digits for you* I take it these contests live far above the realm in which public opinion could make a difference?

Also, thank you for making me think of the day when I will get to share that movie with my daughter. That anticipation is totally making my morning.

These are contests named after preeminent figures of music theatre songwriting, adjudicated by other preeminent figures of music theatre. The experience could be subtitled "In which I find out whether this work really is any good."
