Time Flies
I was looking back in my calendar and realized this is an Anniversary for me. It is not one that I would celebrate, and not one that resonates with much happiness. It does however make me stop and think how relative time is.

On December 9, 2006 I was flying back from New York. My Broadway run was over and I was leaving New York after living there for several months. I had always assumed that the show would run through the Holidays that year, but it didn't. I remember coming home sad, depressed and disoriented. I would wake up in the middle of the night, still thinking I was at my apartment in New York and wondering where I was. The entire Christmas Holiday was oddly out of place.

So much has happened since then, a Tony, the tour and London. Too much has happened to believe it has only been two years. The only thing that lingers this year is that depressing feeling. I guess I'm still not dealing with it very well. It just seems that everything fell apart after London. The whole world went crazy. The economy tanked and "depression" became a buzz word rather than just my feeling.

This seems to be yet another year when we say "good ridence" to a tough year and hope that the next calendar will be kinder. Here is to 2009, I hope it comes soon and with a smile.
As you were,
Jay

Here,Here! Let's hope 2009 is going to better for all of us. Just think it was just a few years ago, when we were worried about Y2k, and that everything was going to stop. Time has a way of healing.
Keep your chin up.

Two years ago this week was also the Gypsy of the Year Competition.

I thought of you when I watched this year's competition, watching Daniel Radcliffe's joyous participation.
