Marie and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day today because our Monday will be very busy. We went to Seashore State Park, had breakfast and lunch together, and exchanged gifts. She gave me a beautiful picture of herself as a little girl, similar to the one I gave her of me at Christmas. She is so adorable. We had our own little private dance here in my room.
She is at her apartment writing now. Last Friday we had a wonderful time walking back and forth to Lake Drummond out at the Dismal Swamp. It was a 10 mile hike.
Our relationship grows more and more beautiful every day. So much time is spent with her, and sharing with her, and writing in our book together, that I hardly spend time writing here in my own journal.
My The Tape That Binds script was chosen to be produced by the university. Grant is directing it. I have a rewrite due on Monday.
Rehearsals for In the Flesh and Pilate are coming along okay. Pilate opens in a month.
Mr. Quicke, a professor here, has asked to meet with me about the possibility of directing a feature-length film this summer. That’s exciting!
Marie and I are planning a trip to Banner Elk and her hometown in New Jersey over spring break. She’ll get to meet the whole college gang, and I’ll get to see where she grew up!
