Opening night! I am so happy - I could scream.
I will be so thrilled to have the first perfomance done. Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed the process of getting it to this point; the challenges and surprises and rewards along the way have made the journey epic, but it's like a baby ready to burst out of it's mother's body: It needs to be born.
And just like birth, it's not the end of the road. Doing our first performance will feel great, but the show will grow and evolve over the next three weeks and become more interesting and layered. Yet at 8:00 tonight, when we have gotten past the curtain call and back out into the street as ourselves, I will feel elated and relieved and so, so happy.
Musings on creating...and whatever else it is that I do. hypnosis, life coaching, writing, acting, directing, taking leaps of faith, etc.
