Monster in the Middle.
I’m finding myself in the middle of an odd juxtaposition – geographically, as well as in my head – intellectually and emotionally.
First, picture me snug in the middle of the US., right…..
Which is right in the middle of this state…
Which is right in the middle of this country….
So truly, the Absolute Middle.
And my mind? My mind is ….
In LA, because that is where my current production takes place. It is set during the Uprising in 1992, and I am finding inspiration and sadness in the material, because the situation and circumstances are ringing louder and louder down through the past 20 years to NOW. My students are brilliant, insightful, and amazing. But my heart hurts most days due to the Truth we are addressing and continuing to uncover.
The other part of my mind is….
Because in only two weeks, I am taking a group of students to this beautiful city in order to see show after show (hopefully). I have been swimming through logistics and planning and managing details (not my favorite things). While at the same time, I am getting more and more excited to be there, to explore, to be with dear friends (one being the Dearest), and to see shows that will take my breath away.
Good things, but feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all.
Still sober. Still going. Still happy to be sober.
Day 213, ollie ollie oxen free!
