10 Days of Reflection
& Performances
It’s the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kipper, days of reflection for those that observe the Jewish high holidays.

For the past two decades, I have used the inspiration of these holidays to reflect on the past year and look at the upcoming year. Between these holidays, I journal, make lists and use project management tools to look at what’s been and work on what’s-a-coming! Last Saturday, I invited a few friends to do a beta test of a workshop that I’ve developed, called TAKING STOCK.

I was encouraged by how well it went and the feedback I’ve received; including some post workshop emails with participants noting that they have already moved forward with goals.

I’m thinking I might do a more public workshop in the next month. If you are interested, please let me know. Either way, I’ll keep you posted.

But meanwhile, here are some of MY goals for
The Marsh’s upcoming year.

1. Have a wonderful Marsh 30 th Anniversary year with great performances, a gala and special birthday events.

2. Work with our incredible staff and community to continually improve our systems and facility.

3. Plan, raise funds and produce The Marsh’s very solo performance/solo musical festival.

Goal 1: Great Performances!

Check out this week’s calendar of Marsh shows.
