Love is a complicated thing that often seems as though it should be far simpler.
Tonight, I saw a play whose main theme was love. It's called Little Boxes and it's playing at Arts Court as part of The Undercurrents Festival. We were fortunate to see the actors afterwards and learn about the writing of it.
For me, it was cathartic. The play features a co-dependent and abusive relationship. I'm glad I read about it before I saw it because there were some parts that hit a little close to home.
So why was it cathartic? Well, in my teen years, I was a theatre kid. In fact, I was working as stage crew in my spare time when I wasn't acting or crewing a school production. I even did summer theatre. Then it wasn't long before I stopped doing theatre altogether and busied myself with a boyfriend who later became my husband.
Yesterday was the fourth anniversary of my divorce. Sitting in that theatre tonight, I realized just how much I've missed it. I also realized that I've come full circle and am finally living the life I was always meant to live.
I'm looking forward to my short play being performed later this year. I'm excited to see what happens with my longer play as well.
I'm enjoying writing my film and have a couple of leads on where to send it when it's done.
I also got over my fear of The Rideau Centre tonight!
This weekend, I'm off to visit friends and train hard at a 2-day iaido seminar. I'm really looking forward to it and it's reading week when I return.
I'm feeling pretty blessed right now ❤
And that's how life's river flows today.
