So I asked my director to send me a copy of my play! I had done a few revisions, all of them on my old clunky slow slow slow computer, and I was happy to realize that she does indeed have the most recent version.
And I didn’t read it over yet but was shocked to realize I had written it in 2008. Feels like a million years, million miles ago. I’ve changed. And I was thinking to myself that I was gonna hate it. Not hate working on it because I love the collaborative process of theatre, but hate the words themselves, the structure… but as I took the pages out of the printer, I didn’t hate it at all.
I don’t want people to misunderstand. There’s no fame or fortune here. This is about a life. It’s about being a working artist and the glory is in the doing and having this thing in my life once again pushes me towards my ideal.
Neptune is retrograde in Pisces and as I write these words I realize I’m not being timely 🙂 That I should be writing about the upcoming Mercury retrograde and Uranus retrograde, but don’t worry, I will 🙂
In the meantime though: what’s your ideal and do you have it? Even a snowflake of that ideal?
And please be as detailed or as obscure as you want 😉
