Spend a Busy Two-Show Day with James Lecesne at The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey
Where the day begins - usually at 8AM (no alarm).
I love the tree outside my window - we’ve been lovers for 25 years.
8:05 AM - Nothing happens without that first cup of coffee. The cup was a gift from my dear friends Melanie and Molly, who live on Cape Cod - I’ve been missing them this summer, but the cup allows me a moment every morning to think of them.
Every morning I sit at my desk, check my email and then begin to work on whatever writing project I’ve got going. Right now I’m working on a Young Adult novel about a kid who is facing the reality of that his grandmother has Alzheimer's.
9:30 AM - Dropping off my Laundry
Angie - My Angel of the Laundromat.
9:35 AM - Your Neighborhood Office - Johnny Wong works Saturdays at YNO, which is the heart and the hands of the West Village. Our local mailspot that acts as concierge, post office, and personal assistant. I’d be lost without them. Just there to mail something. And advertise my show!
9:45 Breakfast - Pretty much the same every day - granola, yogurt, fruit. What’s not to like?
10:05 Dean stopped by to visit with iced coffee. We talked about Buddhism and chanted a bit. Nam Myo Ho Renge Kyo http://www.sgi-usa.org/
12:40 PM - On My Bike - and up the Westside Highway bike path toward the theater.
12:45 PM - My trusty Schwinn parked outside of Adella, the fabulous wine bar across from the theater.
