Wednesday was a different kind of day. I was still only feeling about 25% of self but it was a whole different kind of day. I tried to run but it didn’t go so well. I really kind-of wanted to run but my body wasn’t feeling it. I have been taking Iron on a daily basis and it still doesn’t taste metallic so I’m guessing I need to keep taking it. (Flora is SO CHEAP over here)
We had one showing of Selggin early in the day for an amazing bunch of kids that really had a lot of fun with the show. We had a q&a session after the show my favorite part being:
Kid: Where did you get your fun green socks?
Me: I got them from a store in Denver, CO.
My thoughts: I got it at a store called “the Crypt” frequented by strippers, trannies, and general kinky and fun people who frequent a very diverse area on Broadway.
Then Laura and I got the rest of the day to play around and help the other fools get ready for their performance of Brilliant Traces which was, for lack of a better word, brilliant. Lou and Rita were wonderful, truly one of the nights watching theatre that make the magic feeling leap from the stage into my head.
Before the show I got a wonderful surprise, my three girls from the workshop we did a few days ago came to see the show. They truly lifted my head to a new high. These three girls, who just a few days ago tore my heart out, flung me into a temporary depression and made me generally feel crummy came to see the show.
THEY came to see OUR show! I was as proud as a parent. These girls not only came to see the show but they expressed interest in going to the Passionfruit theatre to volunteer or audition. Theatre can change lives and because I talked to them they came to see the show and maybe, just maybe their lives will be bettered by it.
Today we had our last morning in Athlone and we started our LONG trip up north to this amazing little Barn in Co. Antrim. This is the most beautiful place in Ireland that we have seen thus far.
Austin, Laura and I went down to the ocean and touched it, smelled it and (sorry mum) tasted it. It was lovely in every way.
Tomorrow: a day on the coast!
