It was a happy and sad time today. Our show ended and we ended the day tearing down the set. Life outside the theater can begin again. Things can be accomplished, chores done and life again resumes. There are movies to see, books to read, daughters to tend to. From daughters and their new families, marriages, graduations, starting college life goes on. My life in the theater ceases until after the fall. There will be shows, they will do it without me.
There is talk of taking our show to the OCTA regional competition this June, unfortunately, I will not be able to make it. My daughter is planing her wedding for the same weekend. Family comes first. I don’t think I would miss a wedding.
This fall, my oldest is expecting her first child. This will also take up a bit of time or more.
My youngest is finishing her final year of high school, and plans to attend college next fall. This will also take up much of my time.
Life does not stand still, life move on.
More thoughts on our show in another post. It was an event that many enjoyed but it was still too few. I’m not sure how to get the word out to more, but they missed one of the best shows I’ve been involved with.

As you said, you have much greater roles in the months ahead of you. I’m sure that these will be some of the best and most worthwhile on your journey. And the end of any show is always the best of times and the worst of times.
