“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect”
– Anais Nin
In honor of reaching 100 posts, I wanted to take a moment to stop and thank all of you for continuing to be impassioned readers of Thoughts on Theatre. Your insight and encouragement inspires me everyday.
Things I’ve learned since launching this blog:
– Everyone is looking for a way to connect. People reach out into the community and strangers walk away as friends.
– People are downright fascinating. You want to know about basket-weaving in Indonesia? There’s a blog for that. Feel like learning a bit more about how to take apart your computer? There’s a blog for that. Want to jump out of planes and land safely after 65 seconds of awe-inspiring terror? There’s definitely a blog for that.
– Small messages are often the best ones. It’s amazing how the simplest posts from have stuck in my mind for days. There’s a true power behind harnessing your words to convey a concise message.
– Never hurts to try. Even when you’re not sure about how to approach a new project/entry/chapter in your life, might as well go for it. Chances are you’ll receive valuable feedback here to keep you on track.
– There are few things better than a good laugh. Make me smile. Life’s too short to take things too seriously.
– People will always misuse your/you’re. Don’t get angry. There are so many things that are more important to spend your energy on in life. Politely correct the person if you must.
– Keep going. No matter what. Life will pop up with it’s surprises both large and small, but let them push you forward instead of hold you back.
Thanks again all.
