I’m blogging today from lovely Fairbanks Alaska. In a few short days I’ve completely fallen in love with this place. Haven’t gotten to do a whole lot yet but been really enjoying just chilling and being away from the urban sprawl. There’s an undeniable calm that permeates the landscape here and the energy is absolutely amazing.
Of course, it’s not all vacation fun. Shannon’s here to get some laser eye surgery procedures. I’m actually sitting in the waiting room of the outpatient center as I type this. Enjoying meeting Shannon’s friends, got to check out the Shakespeare Camp in the boonies which was awesome. Looks like Shannon and I may be getting involved with next summer’s production as well. I’m thinking that I’ve had enough of a break from theatre now but I’ve been absolutely burning to get involved at some other theatres and branch out. I love my Franwilly people but just feel like I need to get out and see more. This would be an excellent opportunity to do so. I’m still kind of burnt out from my last show and a little chewed up and screwy feeling but I have to keep going. I don’t want my break to be too much longer lest it becomes terminal sort of thing.
I’m an actor and a stagehand and damnit I miss it. Plus I really want to do another show with my Boyfriend. It’s been a year and I’m finally getting the itch to go back.
That is about all I have right now. Relaxing and doing the vacation thing for the first time since I was sixteen years old. Everything is breathtakingly beautiful up here and I am rejoicing in the experience of the Last Frontier. More to come.
