Anyway, last night I attended an improv show with my friend. It was exactly what I needed, and really helped me forget about some of the madness for a while. I came home so happy.

Right now a lot of my energy is going towards finishing this film, trying to keep my home (and office) in order, and various means to pay the bills. But I do hope to return to improv very soon. It's the perfect mix of terrifying fun.
When I got home from the show, I started watching the first episode of the latest season of SNL, and guess who's face should be the first that I see? Vanessa Bayer's smile came up on screen immediately. I've become a big fan, after seeing her perform in Chicago at a number of places, including Second City.
See why I love improv so much? The people are such fun. They are some of the people I hold very dearest to my heart, no matter how eclectic and dramatic the bunch may be at times.
Each time I walk into the club, I feel like I've returned home. That's a very rare feeling in this world--to feel like you can walk into a building and be home. It's not the building that matters, it's the people inside it that welcome you with a warm embrace each time--no matter how long you've been away. I genuinely adore my ComedyWorx improvisers, and the ones I have met through that extended family. They are a rare, delightful bunch.
Thank you for the medicine last night. It was exactly what I needed.
