Day 56 (421) – February 25, 2019
One of those Monday’s that I am glad to have trudged through. It’s sad when even I comment that I am not acting like myself. I am not sure what’s happening but some of these days stir up some negative energy that becomes harder to reverse. And I feel like I do a pretty good job of finding that silver lining. Oh well, not much to do about it now, and dwelling on it never helps so… I was talking to a fellow blogger about people watching. When I taught acting, I would assign my students to create a piece from a story they create from observing in a public place. My fail safe’s would always be malls, grocery stores, Wal-mart, or a family type restaurant. They would need to write out their observation and work out a story based on what they witnessed. (I did tell them to be discreet, some people may find it stalkery 😛) The beauty in the pieces was how organic the process was. The stories they created and, eventually, performed were based in honesty and truth, because they had a visual to back up the story they created. During my trip to the grocery today, I was reminded of the conversation I had and the project I would assign, and it was scenes like this that reminded me of where a little imagination could lead you.
