Father’s Day thoughts and emotions

Tomorrow is a day off of work, which is nice. We’re going to see Noises Off at the Stratford Festival with Adam’s family. Hopefully the car ride will be uneventful and stress-free. Please let it be uneventful and stress-free.

I kind of have been thinking a little about Father’s Day tomorrow. Not that I want to, but it’s hard to avoid in a lot of ways. I suppose I’m just dwelling or something, but there are some reminders that show up that do’nt let you forget. And yet I can’t really tell if I’m angry or sad. I don’t think I’m angry anymore… I’m tired of being angry, and I haven’t been angry in a long time now. I guess that means I’m sad, in an abstract kind of way. Melancholy thoughts drift to the surface. I’ll get over it in a day or so. But for now I think I need to dwell on things I didn’t have, and things that I had and chose to leave behind. I don’t regret the choices, but that doesn’t make me ecstatic if I think about them.

I should go to bed.

    Ooooh, I went to see Noises Off with a few friends last weekend (see http://www.risc.org/Images/Stratford2004/) and it was excellent! Very very funny (especially if you’re into British humour) and the choreography and physical ccordination required to pull off the 2nd act was amazing!

      It was definitely fantastic. It was fantastic, and the actors were all very talented.
