Trying to feel the difference between being distracted by shiny objects, and being industrious is challenging. In the last week I’ve taken several meetings with an aim towards a variety of outcomes. I wrote a play. I taught a workshop. Opened a new workshop venture. Wrote a few articles for the Argonauts. Saw those articles being picked up and retweeted by 3rd parties I’ve never heard of. Set up further meetings. Drilled deeper into RedShirts. Researched over 6 dozen Chicago theatre companies and then sent Dick to a handful. Designed and distributed posters and handbills to promote my new venture. Wandered aimlessly.
I came to Toronto with clarity. Meet as many people as possible. Write.
I’m now feeling like I need to keep as many of my options open as possible. There’s a lot of opportunities here. There are also a lot more people looking to take those opportunities. I still have more people to meet and doors to crack open. People are impressed with me. I just need to keep pushing.
In the meantime, a camping trip doth beckon. I’m picking up Mel tomorrow morning and we’re heading up north to Killbear where Trenna, Alden, Sharon, and Jerry will meet us. A Saskatchewan reunion of sorts.
I should call Rachel and Waylon.
Alright. On with the day!
