Lockdown has certainly reminded us about the importance of our individual freedom, and that our happy memories are made up of personal life experiences, not possessions. Something that I guess we had forgotten in pre-Covid times.
As I wrote this piece, I felt an inner contentment and re-lived many wonderful ‘showtime’ experiences. It felt great to tap into that inner reservoir of theatrical adventures that I have enjoyed and that have expanded my sense of joie-de-vivre and general well-being.
Those happy theatre memories are now part of ‘me.’ The most special thing about them was that I was able to live them and share them. I carry them within me and reflecting on them reconnects me to my positive emotions wherever I may be and whatever I am doing.
