this is my first foray into an online community and I am not quite sure what to expect. there is somethign remarkbly liberating about listening to (reading) thoughts, experiences, accomplishments etc. published here. In my imagination it is incredible and in reality it is nerve wracking. Although in my work, i pulbish my thought and writing onstage regularly, there is something about removing the performer barrier that makes this seem like a much more vulnerable place. Perhaps it is simply taking away the artifice and acknowledging that I am speaking for myself and that it may not be perfect. So here I go with all my feet. My three-year old wailed today when I left her at her preschool, thousands of miles away from her friends; in yet another new city where I am teaching/rehearsing/performing. Its getting kind of old..... and I'm figuring out how to shift it.
Will be back soon.
