  • Production is:

    13+ hours a day of running, feeding, driving, shopping, carrying, lifting, talking, pleading, coercing, hurrying up and waiting for real life to begin again.

    Not unlike motherhood in many ways.

    Real life is:

    13+ hours a day (I like my sleep) of sitting, typing, dreaming, wondering, questioning, pleading, praying, singing, cleaning, worrying, watching, spending, freaking out and waiting for the next production to begin again.

    I used to get really bored in real life after production was over. Bored with cooking, bored without plans, bored with no money, bored waiting for someone else to hand me work.

    Now I balance that boredom. I breathe into that boredom. I smile into that boredom.

    This is a new way of being for me. It's not 9-5. It's 24/7 until it's 0/7. It's ebbs and flows, hills and valleys. It's scary and it's exhilarating.

    It's not for everyone, but after realizing boredom is something to be explored and enjoyed I love it and realize it's definitely for me.
