The End is Starting
Tonight is our first rehearsal in the theater. I am both overjoyed and dreading it. The theater is a sacred place for me, it is where I feel like I can make a difference in the world. So, as exciting as the first theater rehearsal is, I am also scared to start the whole process. Everything in my life, senior projects, graduation evaluations, wedding planning, all point to the closure of this chapter of my life. Even this first rehearsal in the theater is marking a last time. But tonight, I will go to the theater and make it the best, first, last rehearsal of my college dance career. I will never stop being an artist, and I, God willing, will never stop performing in my sacred place. I cannot let my fear of the future get in the way of my present.
And now that I am getting teary in the library, On With the Show!
