Wow this is so weird. I just spoke your name a few days ago. I was attending a concert and saw Jane Crouse who I knew was going to LA for the big conference and I said, "tell Jeff Gere and Michael McCarty I said "Hi" You just got yours in advance. Actually, have some fun with it. Of course, I'm just guessing you're going to the conference, but if you do, and you see Jane, say, "Jane, how are things in VA. Is that sorry Anthony Burcher still telling? " Hopefully you'll get a good, fun reaction.
Lastly, LA was fun. I thank you for the kind words AND the hospitality. I think we all three kicked butt, but you set the bar. Good to hear from you, Anthony
Hi Jeff! Thanks for your response. In our Technology Panel at STF, I was asked to speak about microphones and their use (from a professional touring storyteller's standpoint) and I believe talk a little about stage presence. What are you talking about? Is it lighting and creating a mood? Or theatre or both. :>)
Hey, CONGRATULATIONS on your wedding! Felicidades y mucho amor!! When do you arrive in New England? I live in Westford, Massachusetts (a little northwest of Boston, not far from the New Hamphire border), but if you're in the area, please join us for a meal and overnight. Boston is pretty cool, as is Providence, RI. I'm sure while you're in Rhode Island for the STF Conference you should see the sights of Providence and Newport.
Your conference this summer sounds grand. Wish I had the moolah to join you. In addition to performances, I'm a sought-after workshop presenter and coach/director.
Have a safe journey, and go to my web site, www.LeenyDelSeamonds.com if you want to contact me via phone or mail. Looking forward to seeing you in March!! Safe journeys. xo, Leeny
Hi Jeff! Welcome to this site, and ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! I'm looking forward to seeing you again - so glad you're coming to New England for Sharing the Fire! I'll be there too. As a matter of fact, I understand we'll be on the Technology Panel together, so we should have some FUN. Take care and safe journey. Write back if you can. xo, Leeny
