In between the torrential rainstorms this weekend, Robb and I went down to the shops in our neighborhood, and to Lake Merritt to gawk at nature.
While at the shops, we ran into a former assistant of mine, Shauna. Shauna told Robb about an experience she had recently. She lost her balance while working on a ladder. As she was falling backwards through the air, the story of Robb's accident flashed through her mind, and somehow she managed to she twist around like a cat and land on her feet.
Shauna tells us that she keeps talking to people who work in the theater industry, and Robb's accident is very much on people's minds whenever they get up on ladders.
(Here's a silly photo of all of us in 2003, hanging out on "cemetery grass" that we were about to paint for a show at Berkeley Repertory Theatre.)
