3 years ago I started a performance piece about my relationship with my Dad called 'Vacations With Dad'. I performed it half finished at the Rogue Performance Festival that year, but I've never finished it. I will be working on it this summer and here's what I need to accomplish to do that.
  1. Gather materials
    My plan is to gather photos, letters, and court transcripts. I'm not sure what else I want, but these seem like a good start.
  2. Write out the rest of the story
    I left out a ten year chunk of the story and my Dad keeps saying, 'when are you going to tell the rest of the story?' I need to just get a draft on paper so that I have a jumping off point. I just wasn't ready to deal with it 3 years ago.
  3. Drives with Dad
    The plan is to take a couple of weekends and re-visit a couple of places with my Dad. We need to go to Santa Cruz, Ione, Folsom, and I'm not sure where else.
  4. ...
    I'm not sure what will come after that. Will I want to use Power Point, or just throw out all of the materials on a table? Don't know. Do I want to incorporate music? Don't know.
