Whirlwind

bike-rideIt’s been a whirlwind of a month! After finishing my first year of grad school I was unsure where to turn – faced with social depression missing my 43 new amazing friends and a lot of extra time at my day job. Rather than sink in, I thought of the next four months as a tabula rasa waiting to be inscribed.  I hit the pavement this week….many exciting audition opportunities.  One thing that my teacher Elizabeth Kemp taught me this year was that my work should not require an audience. Being back at auditioning has raised the age old fears/stress/pressure – but thinking on Elizabeth’s words I truly was able to focus on giving myself over to the project and doing my best with what I have and where I am at.  I am feeling confident, happy, and lucky.  My classes at Upright Citizens Brigade have been a blast! Don Fanelli is a really fun guy and makes the class comfortable and exciting all at the same time. Pulling my bike out of storage I have been enjoying some beautiful rides over the Williamsburg Bridge. In my book club we just finished reading Dan Brown’s The Inferno, and I would like to share with you this quote: “Don’t feel alone – even the gods were conflicted.” Finally finding my post-first-year-of-grad-school-summer-sea-legs, I find I am faced with a beautiful world.  And it should be beautiful – as the rain is certainly cleansing the city! Updates soon to come on my performance dates for the summer!

Love, Light, & Less Rain.
