"Reaching Out" and "The Mome Raths"

Hi again- 

I have just posted to the Dramatic Writing page a short film script (9 pages) called "Reaching Out" and a short play (11 pages) called "The Mome Raths".  

The idea for "Reaching Out" came from the story of a friend of mine in Pullman, Washington. She had an encounter like this after the sudden death of her husband. I, of course, invented all the details, but I hope I captured the heart of what she told me. It's a beautiful story. 

The title of "The Mome Raths" comes, of course, from "The Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll. The characters and the story come from one of those strange places we dip into and out of once in a while. I just happened to capture one of those moments.

It's all free to download. 

I hope you enjoy them! 

------- Hugh

    I wanted to read your latest offerings, Hugh, but they are technologically posted beyond my league (which is akin to beneath t-ball). Your work never fails to be imminently readable and often thought-provoking, thus my ignorance is truly lamentable.

    It has about been long enough so I thought it was time to check in. Things here are ok. Hope you are well and keeping the dishes washed. Thats' what I do and it solves all kinds of problems.
