Closing a Door and Opening a Window

“It’s Over!” – Teen Girl Squad

Prescription for Murder is over.  The end of a play’s run is always bittersweet.  I will not miss the drives into Airdrie on bad roads, nor will I miss the freezing cold backstage of Bert Church Theatre.  But I’ll miss the sheer joy of acting, the camaraderie of the cast, and the feeling of being a part of something.

But all is not lost.

There are a lot of opportunities opening up in the horizon – near and far.

First we have Christmas Hang-ups, a play I wrote and will be acting in – and in some performances I’ll even be singing.  This is a huge challenge for me, and I’m determined not to let it beat me.  My thanks to Craig who doesn’t let me wuss out.

Not to mention my NaNoWriMo novel.  I’m 10,000+ words behind, but I can and will recover lost ground.

In January there are auditions for ALTP, and collaborations.

Life changes fast.  Three months ago I never would have guessed this is where I’d be.  Three months ago, I’m not sure if I’d be ready, but here it is, and I have to embrace everything that comes my way.  This is what I said I wanted: time to put up or shut up.

And put up I shall!
