I don’t even have that much to do today, but I’m a little frazzled-feeling currently. Wonder why?
Date: October 14, 2013
Days Spent on Project: 239
Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC
Person I would have sent it to: George K.
George was another one of the “regulars” at NHSI. He would teach Acting in the mornings with the students. He would direct the students in rehearsal every night. I never got to work with him over those seven years, but he was just so… pleasant. About everything. And friendly. And lovely. And talented.
And genuinely pleasant. Did I mention that?
The more I work in theater, it strikes me how rare that quality is… to find someone who exudes confidence but positive way. I wish I could say that the community here is supportive and sincere and genuine all the time. It can be. But it can also not be. The gentle way to say it is that there are a lot of big personalities here in New York.
I’m incredibly thankful to have met people like George, with their positivity, who maintain a big personality but do so in a warm and inviting way.
Music I listened to while sewing: Spotify is acting up this morning.
It will only let me listen to my The Drowned Man playlist. Not that I’m complaining, any reason to listen to music in a Punchdrunk show is a good reason… but I kinda wanted to listen to some bad pop music this morning.
Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: Do I want to buy a ticket to London to see Punchdrunk’s The Drowned Man?
Dare I do something “irresponsible?” There are worse irresponsible things to do, of course, than buying a round trip ticket to London to see a show and then fly home… but…
That’s silly, right?
Well, anyway, it’s something to fantasize about this week.
