Home | Bittersweet Good-byes

Well, I'm home at last. Looking at the calendar, I should be able to have a little bit of down time before one of two things happens (school or barter theatre gig).

I'm going to be taking as much opportunity as I can to spend time with Stephanie before she gets hitched and leaves for London. I also have some time that Erin and I can visit each other, she's coming to Richmond some, and I'll head to Prestonsburg some. We're both really excited about it. I'm very excited for her to meet as many of my friends as possible.

Last night was really tough on me. I had to leave a bunch of great new friends way too soon. I'm not used to leaving during the middle of the season... actually, the past couple of seasons, I've been one of the last people to leave due to my involvement with the Theatre On Wheels school tours after the summer season. I decided I wanted to have lunch with some people before I left, and I spread the word that whoever wanted to, could come... I was only expecting 4 or 5 people to show up, but there were around 16! Erin of course was there, Elizabeth and Wade (who I worked with on the promo tour), Wes (a buddy of mine from college/JWT), Scott (my boss), Sarah & Hemphill who I knew from last summer, plus a couple of other people in the company that i'd grown close to over the past months (Katie M., Katie Pfrogner, Bronson, Lindsay, and Tony).

It was really tough to say good-bye to all of those people. I have this category of people that I call "Good People". This means they're good to have around in pretty much any situation, and you really don't get tired of being around them. The group that came to eat lunch with me are all good people. And even though I know in this business it's tough to keep in touch with everyone you meet... a good number of these people will never be more than a phone call or an e-mail away.
