One more rehearsal before we head off to Indiana to share our work with a wider community. I am thrilled and terrified and trying to remember to breathe and enjoy whatever comes. Some days, this writing life is such a roller coaster that I just want to make it stop, or hop off the ride. But, the deeper truth is that even though the low points can make me gasp for air and even want to scream, they take my breath away and teach me things that all the level ground in the world can't. So, I am grateful. For the literal and figurative journey— and for all the people who are riding through the deep curves and steep drops, and yes, the high points, with me. Deep breath.
