Transitions

A birthday spent in flight is not to be disregarded lightly. In flight, in transit, in transition. “Up in the air.” All good ways to describe my life right now…

The past two weeks have been intense, full. Full of musical and artistic discoveries, both on stage and off. Full of insights into “the business” and how I want to conduct myself in it. Full of personal challenges and joys that reminded me of what an incredible journey this life can be. When I was a church-goer, this would have been described as a “mountain top” experience, a temporary reprieve from reality and immersion in joy. But you can’t live on the mountain top. It is hard to tear yourself away and return to life in the valley, but it has to happen eventually.

I think I’ve talked a bit here in vague terms about the difficulties of transitioning back into home life after times away. I’ll keep it vague, since this is a blog about my career and not my personal life, but I would appreciate any good thoughts you’d care to send my way as I enter a period of Transition that will likely affect all areas – personal and professional – of my life.

More on this and other adventures to come…

There's Gramma Ariadne, posting from her years of experience :) .

Seriously though, happy birthday (i know I already posted it once. What can I say, I'm a comment whore). I remember spending my 14th birthday on an airplane, on the way to Australia... so that I skipped my birthday entirely. I remember being particularly disappointed that the stewardesses didn't sing or give me cake. A rip-off, to a 14 year old. :)

Happy Birthday! I say you get two days when it's not a leap year.

A very happy birthday to you!

I have always felt as if the world should revolve around me on my birthday; that's yet to happen, but I keep holding out hope! ;-)
