Join the Facebook event for updates.

We are everywhere now: the Work-At-Home Mom or Dad. Technology has created room for working remotely unheard of just a decade ago. It may seem ideal, but really just creates its own unique challenges. Round-table with guests will include questions and comments from all attendees as well.

Use #WAHParent to join the conversation from home. And yes, children welcome!

*How can you transition from freelance/office hours to working around a child’s schedule?
*How to communicate client expectations without making excuses?
*How to create an office area flexible enough to also balance parenting activities?
*Where to find local activities that allow you to relax or work without your child, and ones that give you the time to focus on them away from work? (Also a handout)
*How to address breastfeeding during meetings
*Should your small budget go towards a babysitter or assistant?
*All this, and quality time with your partner, too?

Round table Guests include:

I came home to my husband hosting Tabletop Day with many friends. I won Zombie Dice! Makes sense, since I felt like a zombie on Saturday night.

Teaching to Tweet

The reason this image really excites me is simple:

two very talented and busy people at 24th ST Theatre took more than three hours out of their day to learn the basics of Twitter and how they can use it to further our Outreach goals.

1. We took our time and talked through their questions.

2. Then moved to practical demos using my screen.

3. Ended with Deb (Artistic Director) & Jay (Managing Director) working on their Twitter profiles at their own pace, asking questions with me guiding them. We set a goal for both of them to tweet once a day. Hope you’ll follow their progress!

And love this tweet shortly after our time together! ‏@Jay24thstreet ; I learn from the BEST@cindymariej. Thanks for teaching me to navigate the Twitter universe. Feels like Driver’s Ed all over again.

Veterans Day: the Reality of Stories

At a wedding right after “The Hurt Locker” premiered, my husband Dan spoke with a family friend on leave from the military. This friend didn’t understand why anyone would want to watch a movie like “The Hurt Locker,” why we would want to see that story on screen. Dan explained that we have no idea what daily life is in the military is like, and especially not those specific stories.

That’s all it took for the family friend to understand. He never considered that we, artists in Los Angeles, might want to get a glimpse of understanding his work.
I think it really hit him in a positive manner.
Yesterday I saw La Razon Blindada, the production that transferred from 24th ST to Rubicon Theatre Company. I knew the basic premise: two political prisoners meet every Sunday at 3pm and cannot move from chairs or remove their hands from the table (true story). To sustain their sanity, their reason behind bars (thus the title, which translates to The Armored Reason), they tell each other stories. Read more….
