...after a proper writer's freak out
...and sending all of this to poor louise (See: gratitude number 26)
exploring the sublime new york city
being taken to friends' favorite places
rekindling old friendships (leah, michael, dane, nick, kenn, flagg, alex, ari, ben, bergen, santino, jessica, adam, rachel... and so many more) I'm so so lucky!
and discovering new ones
...especially in the unlikeliest of places
kicking professional butt!!
auditioning like a crazy person
...thanks to Jeff, who is showing me such angelic care (and thanks to Ruthie, for introducing us)
seeing great theatre
...in fact opening weeping in the third row centre of bond and wolverine's foray
saying the word "Ninja" a LOT
eating amazing new york food
...and then delighting in walking it off as I fly around the city on foot!
reveling in this fact: peanut butter at my beck and call!
discovering my "inner north" (I DO have a sense of direction!!) as well as a total ease with this great and glorious city
sorting out the "zen" of santino's nederlander dressing room
very VERY cathartic "potato voodoo" with leah
fainting at joe's pub
totally honored by a TMA Award for best performance in a musical, what an utterly unexpected delight!
thinking a great deal about London and how there is, indeed, a life for me there in some way... and how it is so often that one must make a journey to discover these things...
savoring the Jewish high holidays and loving any opportunity for new beginnings
