Excitement mounts

The authors
Laura Jeanne Morefield and mom, 2008
Aboard Crystal Symphony on our final, glorious trip together
Now we are on a new adventure
The excitement mounts as performances of The Warriors' Duet approach. Here are two stories, one written by Mannis Publications editor Anthony King that will run in Downtown News, Uptown and Gay San Diego.

The other is written by James Hebert at San Diego Union-Trib.

I am literally, well not exactly, beside myself with excitement!

It seems like it's been a long time since Laura died (almost two years ago) and I just thank God she gave me these assignments to keep me busy!

If you haven't gotten your tickets yet, there may be a some left for July 5 and 6.

Go to and get yours now! I'll be so happy to see you there!

Warriors at the Fringe

Here is Circle Circle dot dot's post card to promote their production of The Warriors' Duet, which they are mounting in the inaugural San Diego Fringe Festival. I'm in awe of the gorgeous art and of the company. I'm so eager to see what directors Katherine Harroff and Anne Gehman have done.

I plan to be on the roof following each performance to talk with anyone who wishes to discuss the evolution of this work.

Latest on the Warrior

Laura and Mom 2008

My late daughter Laura Jeanne Morefield's poem, "I Invented Body-Surfing" from the chapbook titled The Warrior's Stance, has been published in Serving House Journal. Laura is in the kind of company she always hoped for, thanks to editor Steve Kowit. Just go to contents and click on her name, found under Poetry. 

Here's a poem about Laura that I wrote this morning at Crest Cafe

Finger Food

I should have known, so eager you were
to grasp, to take the world between
thumb and forefinger and raise it
to your lips, seeing, inhaling the aroma
putting it into your mouth, and as soon
as lips formed words and mind made thought,
describing it all for me.

I miss you most when at leisure,
dining outdoors, lingering, savoring
the experience, the night, the day, the sights.
I remember what we gazed upon together,
you burbling ceaselessly, and I, gathering
grace that continues, pulling it in
like a cloak to warm and cover my heart.

In further Warrior news, Circle Circle dot dot is about to announce casting for The Warriors' Duet, which plays July 5, 6 and 7 at 10th Avenue Theatre as part of the inaugural San Diego Fringe Festival. Katie Harroff at Soroya Rowley share directing duties, and I would not be happier over the casting. Go to  and click on Shows, pulldown Artists, and purchase your tickets early. The cabaret space has limited seating!
