|Well after some sleep we gatherd again to rehearse and perform the show we hadn’t touched for 2 weeks. I actually think the time away benefited us. We came back with a fresh perspective on the show and played to an incredibly receptive audience in Tawanda, Pennsilvainia.
After the show we gathered in an old train depot across from the theatre for left-overs from a private reception the theatre had for contributors. These left-overs were far better than the Trisha Yearwood leftovers we had in Joliet.
A special treat was the beautiful falling snow-flakes right after the show. Us Texans don’t see a lot of snow, so it’s still very special when we do.
Being apart from these people highlighted to me how much I had grown accostumed to them all. Now playing some of the last shows with them it is becoming more and more clear that I will miss them terribly. They have become a second family to me. Taught me things about myself and others that I might never have learned. Everyone on the tour has issues (self-included) but it has been wonderful to get close enough to everyone to explore them a little bit. I am enriched for the experience and will forever be different for it.
