ruminations

yesterday, while at the hideout, someone asked me.. "what do you do now that you don't do improv?"

i do life! there's so much to do, not just one craft. i've gone camping, hiking, playing halo, ballet, lindy, ultimate frisbee, painting, buying Christmas presents, reading, writing, kitty loving, hanging out with friends.

and i still do improv, just not all the time. i know for some folks improv is their one big passion, and in some ways i'm envious of people who have that one-big-passion. but i've always been a jane of all trades, and mistress of few.

in the meantime, i made tiramisu yesterday.. it didn't come out as pretty as i want it to, but it is pretty yummy!

I can't tell you how often I get the *exact same* question, as well as variants like "come back to improv."

I still do and love improv. I have not left improv or given up on improv.

But now I also do a lot of other life things. I work out and work and travel and read and write--and I love my writing time. I'm thinking of taking some more cooking and musical lessons. I hang out with people without "shop talk" and just live and be.

Improv became that girlfriend who wouldn't let me go out and do other things.

I understand that some people may not want to be completely devoted to improv. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so wrapped up in it. But I like doing it lot and I love the people.

When people say "come back to improv", I think they mean the community. I'm not saying that you're not involved Nadine, cause I feel like I see you around a fair amount and that's cool. But for others, just showing up, doing your show, and then leaving isn't being a part of improv.

If you don't go out, see other people's shows, be supportive of your fellow artists, talk to others in the community, and hang out with the people, it's going to seem like you're not around anymore.

If people say something, it's probably because they have noticed and missed your presence. It's not something to be scoffed at. It shows that they remember you and liked having you around.
