5 hours of sleep, woke up with a sore throat, late to work. The time between work and rehearsal was going to be tight already, and no one gave me my warning for getting off work so I was 5 minutes late. No time for dinner, mom unsympathetic. Wonky run through. My shoes are somehow a size too big suddenly?! I trip over everything, lines are scrambled, everything is just a little bit off. I’ve been crammed in small spaces with far too many people all day. Exhausted. No gas in the tank. Finally arrive home. And my body decides to start expelling a layer of organ tissue. Awesome.

My mom said she would never get that close to a tiger. I thought about how I sometimes have a strange feeling like I want to give birth to a lion cub.

The aging matriarch, who’s surrendered after so many years and given up her hosting and cooking to her daughters. She is still consulted as the authority of thanksgiving, but seems to lack her usual energy.
The new widower quietly crying in the dark entry way over a bouquet of rare purple roses, sending the first holiday alone. He says he’s grateful for the memories, and before he leaves, he stops to give a word of wisdom.
The mother who’s son is halfway around the world, hoping he’s safe. She laughs and laughs over a stupid joke until she cries.
Clint, to my dad

|Mom:||you don't say that to your mom! You're grounded for life. <br>|
|Jake:||so, only another week<br>|
|Ryan(skyping with Aaron):||you're looking normal. Good job. </p>|
Last year the only thing I could think of to be grateful for was art. Art was the only thing that gave me hope, that kept me from being completely lost in the darkness. Everything else was unhappiness and absurdity.
This year, I am happy to say that I feel very grateful. Grateful for the past year that I’ve had. Grateful for the journey, the many many new experiences and changes that have occurred. And grateful for the people in my life. Grateful for the support I’ve gotten from my family in so many ways, grateful for my wonderful boyfriend, the many magical moments we’ve had, the support and love and light I find in him, grateful for the people I’ve met working in theatre here, the laughter and joy of being in a show. Grateful for me for having the strength to survive, for recommitting to a life of love, for never giving up, for always moving forward.
The past year has been really incredible.
