New Place to Hang My Hat

I'll need one. Tomorrow I hand over the keyfob to my office at Luther. By mid-July I will have finished working with the Coteau editor of my Globe Theatre history book, after which I'll have to hand over my keys to my GT workspace, where I am at the moment. 
Apart from my bachelor pad in the Frontenac, that will leave my constellation of coffee shops, pubs, park benches, picnic tables, library tables and pool aprons as home-away-from-home workplaces. 
Last night I caught closing night of Mary Poppins at the Globe. I'd been tracking this show since rehearsals started almost two months ago and had seen at least a half-dozen performances. At first, it was simple fascination at watching these skilled actor/singer/dancers grow into and take over their roles. The production side of things (the props-makers, set builders, stichers, etc.)--I couldn't get enough of all that either.
I found myself inspired by their work, all of them, and I used opening night of MP (May 21) as my target for finishing my history of Globe Theatre, of which my Mary Poppins diary, also known as "A History of Right Now", would be the closing chapter (but for an Afterword).
Now that's over too. 
What am I going to do with myself!
