Looking back at interpreting for black Deaf actor and comedian CJ Jones‘ one-man show 2014, it amazed and delighted me when I saw him in Baby Driver in 2017. What a thrill to see his success!
My partner & I started this puzzle Monday evening and just finished it this afternoon. Talk about spending Sunday in the park with George! I saw the original painting, Un dimanche après-midi à l’Île de la Grande Jatte (A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte), hanging in the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993. It is huge, about 3:2 meters (about 10×7 feet), and I spent some time in the museum marveling at it. I’ve heard, seen, and sung Stephen Sondheim’s musical Sunday in the Park with George based on this painting, so it has added significance to me. This gave us something entertaining to do indoors on hot summer days during the coronavirus epidemic.
I woke up with this song in my head, so I Googled it and found this video. I’m so glad I did. I didn’t know the singer was related to Peter Capaldi, and I thought it was really sweet that his cousin acted in his video. It’s a very moving story and you have to watch it till the end to fully appreciate it— but I won’t tell you what it is, because you know, “Spoilers.”
John Mayer’s “Clarity” hits me so hard I can’t even sing’ “ooh Ooh ohh,” I get so choked up.

I love this article. it reminds me of what I want to say to the 1,000 hearing people watching me while I interpret for a single Deaf person: “I’m here for them, not for you.”
