Sometimes I hold onto things so tightly that I think I can turn them into gold.  Not really, but I'm looking for the right analogy.   There was a "bit" in the play and I thought it would be really funny.... we just couldn't make it work the way I had envisioned it.  Soooo, I went back... let go .... and tried coming at it from a different point of view.   I actually think the new replacement is funnier than what I had originally blocked.  

So THAT creates a new dilemma... my mind goes to, "maybe I should rethink EVERYTHING!"  Not gonna happen, but that is how my mind is wired (sometimes).  

Anyway, I feel back on track.  Yesterday was a great rehearsal.  I think everyone is starting to really feel more of a connection to their characters and to each other.  I'm really looking forward to this next week.  It will be interesting to see what happens when we take off for the Christmas holiday.. but, I will look at the glass as half full.   Good thing I like lemonade!
