Turning out the lights

I enjoy the journey. Destinations have rarely been as memorable for me. I enjoy the feeling that there is much more to come.

I can still remember the final production of Much Ado About Nothing, with the Ariel Players – over 20 years ago now. We had 6 months of preparation and anticipation, and then that Saturday night we were all done. It has forever changed the way I feel about that part of the city, because I have so many memories right there. Things that will never happen again in the same way to me.

I think that’s related to why I dislike turning out the lights at night. There is a certain sadness to thinking that the living room will be empty, quiet, still, and dark.

It is more pleasant to imagine it as always full of life, friends, and activity.
