Green Eyed Monster

Today I was filled with jealousy. My heart squeezed a size or two smaller.

All because someone else had some good fortune. Some good fortune of the kind that I would like to have.

A mean jealousy.

Then I thought. This supposed 'good fortune' was the result of hard work, committment, talent, time and, yes, a little bit of luck.

All things that I have or could exhibit if I exerted myself a bit in the areas where exertion is required. Or diverted my attention from one area to focus on another.

Except the little bit of luck. That lady comes and goes as she pleases.

And now that I've thought it through, I am a little bit less jealous, but a little more "mmmphphph" at myself. (Can't think of the right word). Disappointed in myself, I guess.

I am happy for the good fortune getter. I really am.

I just want a little bit of it, too.

I saw South Pacific and Chicago done by Broadway touring groups. And tomorrow I get to see Legally Blonde!

I saw Camelot done by a High School. Quite ambitious but they pulled it off fairly well.

I saw The Music Man done by a local musical theater. Well done.

Next week Harvey opens, in which I have a smallish part, and THEN.... Guys and Dolls in which I have a huge-ish part!

I love, love, love the theater. I love to be in shows, I love to watch shows, I like to think about shows I'd like to be in.

I do not, however, enjoy auditioning. But I'll get over that.

What about you? Seen anything lately?
