Today I had "cute lunch date" with Melanie. We talked about how parenthood has changed my entire way of working. No more time for crap. Just get it done and then go play in the park.
I like this way of working. We had two rehearsals this week that were necessarily extremely short due to space scheduling. The result was that we got. shit. done. fast. Nothing extraneous was in the room with us - only our bodies and words. A side bonus was that we got to bring the girls with us to rehearsal. The more we bring them into the studio, the more impressed I am. They continue to be incredibly adaptable and inspire me with how flexible they are. I love how comfortable they are in the studio and in the BAX space. I love that they made Marya drawings "because she might not know we were here."
Today after lunch I was inspired to write and then the words just crumbled away from me. Artistic despair! And then David and the girls came home and wanted me to play Three Bears with them (David was Goldilocks, obviously) and I was rebooted.
