I signed up for an acting course-minicourse, and attended my first session yesterday, all day. The all day part was a bit hard to take. I am no longer able to sit in unconfortable chairs a whole day. Most of the people there had had acting experience. But the teacher was smart and alert to our needs.
What I liked most was how it felt to try something new: both exhilarating and frightening, in a good way. To stay alive is to learn new things, I kept telling myself as I drove over in a vehicle that was not my choice to drive.(that is another story for another day!)
At the end of the day I was exhausted, with a headache, with an enormous hunger (I get hungry after events that are full of unexpected elements).
Today, I feel like a new woman, ready to be challenged again, to find a new path and a new stride, to be observant and careful, to be bold and excited about life.
