I think my body needed a break anyway. This morning I went for a run, the best one I've had in several weeks. It was 5:30 and still dark. The air was clean and cool. When I was visiting my parents last weekend, my father suggested that I take my jo with me on my runs as there have been two attacks on women in recent weeks. In both cases the suspects were caught. I tried to imagine how I'd run with the jo without my arms and legs getting whacked by it.
I've been asked to audition for a play at the local amateur theatre I belong to. It's called ‘Wake' written by David Widdicombe. The director seems to think I could portray a sixteen year old daughter of a mortician who attends wakes to meet boys. I had vowed to limit my theatre activities to set painting, but this is a one act play and hopefully won't be too intrusive on my training schedule…IF I get the part…that's a big if.
