Today is our 7th wedding anniversary. For me there is something deeply meaningful about completing this 7 year cycle. It’s like the first phase of our marriage that we have navigated successfully, and now we move onto the next one. I love it. We love it; in different ways, but with the same intention.
Last night was the performance/exhibition/gathering of minds and eyes and ears and hearts for The Deep Red Sea. While yesterday and last night was all about action; preparing, loading, driving, setting up, doing, striking; today has been about reflecting; on how it was.
First there is the ‘how was it received’? From the feedback I have gotten it went really very well and people loved it and they were moved. People have said and written fantastic things, and sent beautiful messages.
Then there is the ‘how was it for us?’. vaun and Nica and I have spoken, and Sigrun has emailed. And we are all filled with strands of happiness and almost fulfillment. We made our dreams things. I don’t think that feeling will last long; we are all talking about our next thing, and how we will do this thing differently and all the other stuff we need to and will do. But for the moment we have no regret about how and what we did do, and we are all in a state of grace. That is the fix. That is why we do it. For that feeling. And you seldom get that feeling. But when you do! When you do!
Here is a picture from the slide show that was part of the show. I love these pictures and I particularly love this one, which is why I am putting it here. It makes me feel that feeling again; just for a little while longer.
