Thought I’d begin this post with a message for me taken from the movie Moonstruck. Cher slaps Nick Cage’s cheek and loudly says those words. This is my “blog slap” to myself.
You see I’ve been somewhat lethargic since Headland’s Opus Nostrum Theatre was destroyed in the fire. We had hoped that it was repairable, but alas is not.
Volunteering for the play has kept me occupied since my son ran away from home into the arms of his girlfriend. (Please ignore my feeble attempts at brevity.)
These past 3 months have been difficult because we were so close. I am adjusting, but it’s hard. I can’t talk to anyone about this because most people think I’m being melodramatic. Perhaps they’re right, but as I said: We were so close.
I knew this day was coming, but did it have to come so soon? Today is Valentine’s Day… and February 17 is his birthday, and I have no theater to run to where I can pretend to be someone else – a witch no less.
Our director is looking for a venue, and we are still practicing; so I hope to be on the stage soon because I really need it. Meanwhile I just have to keep writing… and as Cher says: “Snap out of it!”
