So... as some of you may know... though not necessarily care.... I took a hiatus from everything. Stopped writing.... basically disappeared. Much of it was due to getting used to my new life here in America. Its amazing how work can take over every aspect of one's life. I would have to say the first two years of my life here in Houston, were probably one of the hardest times of my life. Happily, we got through it and aside from the few cursory hiccups that life throws our way... things are much better.
My eldest daughter is at college in London, the 2nd one is at Stony Brook and youngest is getting ready to take off as well. Now that I am starting to get a grip on what my life is really going to be looking like, I feel like I want to go back to exploring my creative side. I even auditioned for a community theatre group, and started rehearsals. Except, I realized I don't have the energy I used to have ... had to bow out regretfully because of time and energy constraints. To be fair, the rehearsals were way too far to follow up with every day and may still try and find something closer to home :) But if you are in Houston... go check this play out. The tickets are reasonably priced and its a very well written play.
Now I am helping a friend launch his clothing line by the name of Razail. Looking forward to seeing our idea come to fruition and then may even delve back into theatre. I miss it. I know I have always loved the performing arts and now that I have taken such a long break... its as if my soul craves it. Lets see what opportunities come my way and what wonderful people I come across as we all meander about our journey of life. It's past midnight, and perhaps time to get some rest before I get sucked back in to the practicalities of life
