Why I am feeling loss, but it's okay

Well. Okay. Sunday was closing night for The Death of Albatross's Wollongong season. Intense. Exhilarating. Fabulously successful in so many, many ways (preliminary figures even suggest we made a modest profit).

But now...over. My wonderful actors and I have dispersed again to the four winds, on to other projects. The thrill of accomplishing of something glorious together, trusting each other utterly, giving an intricate and precious gift to the audience — here, we made this, it's for you — done.

After the mountaintop comes the desert, I guess. And I guess it has to be that way — if it were all mountaintop, how could we climb any higher? How could we know we yearned to?

It was a great experience - again. And to do so in our home town, with people in the audience who knew what a good thing was when they saw it. How great was that?

Roll on the next one!
