It's already February and I haven't finished writing about my NC trip. My 2 weeks residency in Raleigh area stretched to Johnston County, including Micro-Pine and Powhatan Elementary School. My trip ended with Oak Grove Elementary in the heart of downtown Raleigh.
Each school had a unique stage setting. It could be a perfect auditorium, it could be a no-way-gym. Gym is a tough one to set up my show because of the sound escapes to all directions. And in a big gym my show looks like a one woman playing basketball alone. But for somehow it works. That's the beauty of my show if I may say. With the help of parents, teachers and school staff, speakers are hooked and chairs are placed, then here I go! It's not a cliche - I can't do it without them. Thank you!
Without good help life is tough and without good food life is disappointing. Joy Luck Club, a Chinese Diner, kept me cheerful. It's near Cary in Raleigh, nested in The Grand Asia Market.
