So, 6 weeks have come and gone since my last blog post.
It’s been a busy time. In truth, I took some time off from posting- after the passing of my father, I took a break. I’ve been, this week, trying to figure out how to jump back into posting on this blog again. After debating, I gave up the question of “how” and decided “now” was the time to just do it.
The outpouring of love for my dad, and our family, has been wonderful, and I’m eternally grateful to everyone for their kindness and warmth. We miss him every day, but celebrate who he was and the life he lived.
It’s also been a busy time – I was in a play, The Best Brothers, which did very well. I had an amazing time during the production, it was a gift to have it happen at this time in my life. Here’s a link to one of the reviews, just for fun.
That closed on Sunday, and I’m now in rehearsals for the first play I’ve directed in a long time. (Well, I spent a week re-mounting a production that I’ve directed several times before, but I’m not counting that.) Sirens, by Deborah Zoe Laufer, is a beautiful and hysterically funny play about life, love, passion, and the ability to see clearly the wonderfulness in your life. The cast is great, the design team is amazing, and I’m lucky to be working with all of them. More about SIRENS…
So – lots more stuff going on: I’m doing a new podcast, a new adventure in my health and medical life-journey has begun that should yield positive and exciting results, my wife and I were the guest speakers at an ICU Workers Convention (an incredible honor and experience) and there are some amazing things happening at work. Also, I’ve been tricked into playing Clash of Clans on my phone, and now I’m a little hooked. I’m not good, but I’m hooked! I’m looking forward to talking about all of that and more here soon.
So – as I’ve been doing since getting out of hospital last April 1st, I am continuing to celebrate life. I’m one of the luckiest guys on the planet, with an amazing family, wonderful friends, incredible co-workers and a great job. Thanks, Universe.
