Back for Round 2
The first week back after an extended break is always eventful. We've re-entered the Juilliard continuum where space and time are fluid and mysterious. I'm also sore. Very sore. We now take movement classes back-to-back three days a week; after 3 weeks off from Darryl, I'm feeling it.
It was so great to see my groupmates again after 3 weeks at home. I missed everyone and couldn't wait to get back to work. That's not to say I didn't enjoy my time and home and relish the opportunity to get away from it all. I spent the time in Phoenix with my family, friends and doggies. Most of my days consisted of sleeping in, eating a leisurely breakfast, hiking mountains with my dogs, and then watching movies or football. Oh, and of course stuffing my face with lots of delicious holiday food. It was a much needed time of sleep, reading, relaxing with my family and lots of sunshine. 75 degrees and sunny everyday in Phoenix!
We got our casting assignments for this quarter's rehearsal project right before break, so I started digging into Arthur Miller's All My Sons. For some research, I had a great conversation with my 89-year-old grandma about World War 2 and the time directly following when everyone came home (the setting of the play). This first week back has brought us into nightly rehearsals with our director, Jenny Lord. I love this play and I'm thrilled our group gets to tackle it right now.
Sunday means hot yoga and cooking, of course, so here's the colorful veggies for this week!
