Guess Who's Back?
I won't even begin to address my absence. Call it old age. Call it a lack of interest. Call it life getting in the way... All I can say is I'm back and I wanna talk about it. I finished my nearly 3 year run of Mamma Mia almost 2 weeks ago now, and I'm only just beginning to come out of the fog of those lost years! Not that I don't appreciate all the time I spent with the show, but there's a lot of baggage that goes along with it and it's time to start pulling the laundry out of the closet. I'm gonna try and go back and re-live at least some of the experience and catch you up on the past 2 1/2 years that I DIDN'T write about, so bear with me. It's not gonna happen overnight, or even over a few weeks, but I'm gonna try. I'll start by saying - it was a helluva ride! For an actor, ANY actor, to spend almost 3 years in a single show is an absolute blessing - and absolutelyanathema to his or her creativity. Not to say that one can't be creative in what they're doing, but the juices run dry after a while, and I'm quite sure mine did. There's lots more to say about all this and I'll expound on it over the next few weeks and months, but I just wanted to drop a note say "thanks for sticking in there" and "I'm back", whether you like it or not! ;)
