We had Sunday and today off although I had to get up at 5am today to get ready for the Today Show. The interview went well, I think. The feedback makes me feel it was good. I like Meredith Vieira.
So, even though I didn’t have a straight-through 2-day break it’s been close to it and it made me think: Just as silence makes sound meaningful and death gives meaning to life, so work makes free days meaningful.
Because I make my living as a writer, speaker and actor, I don’t work regularly. There are days, even weeks, when I stay home. Those days don’t make me want to rejoice. But today and yesterday felt like special gifts. I kvelled all day long, basking in the unscheduledness of it all.
Still I miss Moises and the cast and crew and am looking forward to getting back into it. I like getting notes (from the director about the previous performance), trying out new cuts, new lines. I’ve already email some proposed cuts to Moises.
Tomorrow night will be our ninth show. I am off to Pilates. Days off are the only times I can workout during previews because we rehearse during the day and perform at night.
See you next time.
