Sometimes in life, you have dreams that you chew on only in thought form. They make your heart sing as the "What ifs...?" arise within you, but somehow these dreams never see the light of day.
Last night, I saw what happens when a dream is realized. Our first show, which included three really great sets that raise bars and an audience ready for anything, made for a magical evening where all of my heart's desires were playing out before me. To be surrounded by loving, supportive friends and strangers, who in that intimacy of a show become friends, is one of the greatest dreams I could ever realize. It was the essence of what makes me love improv so much. To be able to take everyone in the room on a ride that no one else has ever been on and no one else will ever see again is a tremendous gift.
Today I ride the wave of joy.
Realize your dream.
