My life right now is made up of just three things:
I have so many meetings – straight up business style, e.g. suits and money – that is it. Fucking crazy.
Training is the most humdrum side of the life, actually, me, alone, in a crappy municipal gym. Sure, there is some nice scenery from time to time; the foreign hostesses like to come in on their breaks and use the step machines… but I’m really just there as short a time as possible. Get shit done and then get on with the other 20 hours of my day.
That said, my handstand number is really getting nice. It helps to train outside of school and outside of a show. Just to train and do the technique because it is what you do.
Still, I wish there was more space in japan though, to move and to run around and to dance like crazy movement style… it is nice to take an hour a day to just do flexibility, though… it is very calm.
This writing is just a vestige of the acting days… I still feel like someday i am going to spit something out onto a piece of paper that might make someone smile or change their mind about something, and so I keep at it. Think of it as the other half of the training.
Planning and uncertainty
Next year is taking form so much more slowly than last year… it takes a year to get anything confirmed, and I am just getting in on the ground floor of this brand-new building, so there is all this uncertainty and confusion combined with the hopeful feeling that I might be able to do something new with this place…
I guess if Taiwan is the plan, I’ll be here until mid-January, and then I’ll need to find something until March. I was hoping to be in the States soon, after all… I am really feeling like I need a roadtrip. it is hard to take one of those when you are on an island that is smaller than California. And you don’t have a car. Maybe I’ll take some time to put this one-man show together that I have been working on the last couple of months… It could be really small, like 40 minutes, I think, but I could do it in my hometown with some other artists in the show and split the money… just to get out of this business mode that I have been in the last six weeks.
