"When I think of home, I think of a place
where there's love overflowing ..."
DAY 28: (Missed my post yesterday, so there's TWO today!) I'm not a social animal. I'm extraordinarily private and rather introverted and it takes quite some time for me to be comfortable around new people. I could probably count the number of people who know "the real me" on one hand. I don't particularly like to party and don't go to clubs or bars. I dread the thought of being in a social setting surrounded by people I don't know. So ... the theatre makes up a VERY large portion of my social life, and it's a place where I always feel happy, safe, and content. It's my other "home."
I went to the opening of the new show at Theatre Jacksonville last night, and because my friend Marcia was sick, I went on my own. Normally I don't like going to places by myself, though I have gotten used to seeing a movie solo. I still can't do a table service restaurant by myself, though. But I'm getting off the subject ...
I feel totally at home in the theatre, especially at Theatre Jacksonville. It is a building filled with memories, very dear friends, and total strangers who know me by name. It's a wonderful feeling walking into the Little Theatre in San Marco, and I'm forever grateful for having this second "home."
