Withdrawal. It's a common denominator among the RENT team. Everyone's minds are just on an entirely different planet right now. You sing the songs. You stroke the melodies. It's the only thing that's going through your head while you're conducting a meeting, or hanging out with other friends, or having lunch, or while you try to clock in a power nap on your way home - especially during the down times of the day. Withdrawal. It makes the days go longer, and then when you have some semblance of RENT surprise you in your home, the day goes faster, and you wish it would never end.
Today, I was wonderfully surprised by Fred and Nic (seen in the picture) who came over the house to hang and pick up the brushes the latter left behind. We ended up hanging in Polo and Roomcore til about 12. First off, I was surprised. Since I'm not really part of the cast, more of the behind-the-scenes team, I haven't really had the chance to bond with them on an intimate sit-down occasion. It was always in a group and you can only really do so much when you're in a group. I was wonderfully surprised to know that I have a lot of things in common with these two. We're geeks. We're artists. We're adventurous. And obviously, we love theater! 'Nuff said. and Fred loves X-MEN comic books (woot woot). And Nicole can draw a wicked eye and a sexy eyebrow. And it's great that we're all artists and activated by the beauty of RENT. That at the very least is a powerful common horizon.
I was texting and facebook-ing earlier today with Jenny aka Mother Hen also and we were both saying how much we missed RENT. and it's only been a day. yep, there you go. I let myself go, and now I'm sort of attached. And with la vie boheme, there are times when you're sad, and there are times when you're happy. But life is really more exciting this way anyway...
