I went & saw a play on Friday night with an old friend, & later on that night a discussion with another friend (who was in the play) turned into a question of whether I would ever be interested in directing again; the theatre company likes to introduce new directors to its shows. I felt like a door that was once firmly closed had started to open again; but I shut that door for a reason, right? I don't think it's ever something I could do again, but 8, 9 years ago, the theatre world was my life. That was another lifetime ago. I briefly entertained the thought of stepping into it again, but I don't think it's for me anymore. I would love for it to be, but I am changed; I am happy with the way things are right now. I am leaving that door closed.
I feel very content & happy at the moment. I love my job & my work; I am excited for the future & eager to be challenged. Little things fill me with joy, like finding live recordings of shows by my favourite artists & seeing The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus next weekend (I am almost more excited about this than I was about Harry Potter!) & delicious snacks & making packages for friends. There is less than 3 weeks until thebluebells & Noel & I start travelling to see Tori. I am so blessed & grateful for everything I have.
