sweet summer

In the midst of rehearsals and auditions this week, sunny days (finally) and late nights. A few days ago J and I came home from a Back Kitchen rehearsal about 7 o'clock; J had plans to do some video editing, I was going to walk down the Drive to a girlfriend's place and enjoy the evening sun. Instead we made the fatal mistake of lying down on the couch...just for a second. Well- that second felt so good we moved to the bedroom, and woke up 3 hours later at 10:30pm! Then we made the even bigger mistake of getting up, which sent our body clocks into a spiral of destruction. When I tried to get back to sleep at midnight my body would have none of it; it was 3am before I could rest. And I had to get up at 8:15 and go to a busy day at Kites & Puppets- yay.

I'm swingin' between bad habits (smoking- eugh! and eating cheesy bready things) and good moves (running home from work, long walks). Getting into the groove of rehearsals and, after the usual uncertainties, finding useful things to do and say to the cast. As much as I miss performing when I'm just in Music Director mode, there is the pleasure of being able to sit there and listen to their performance and say I helped to make this happen. Which is not as easy when you're in the show, you don't get that outsider perspective. Also much easy to be nitpicky when I just have to listen hard instead of playing and singing as well.

And now, on another note...
