Yes!!! Into the Woods is one of my favorites! I’ve seen it at least three times! I will look up Christopher Moore. And I try to practice mindfulness by living in the moment every moment of every day.
I have a question for you: Did you ever consider reporting your father? I just realized your mother is my age, so it was unheard of back then to complain; although, once I walked down to the Beverly Hills police department and asked what would happen to me if I ran away? I was told my father could report that I was “incorrigible” and have me put away. What about you?
