Working hard to hand it out

In The Daily Drool on July 15, 2009 at 3:51 pm


I’m tired.

There’s something to be said for the sheer outpouring of energy this camp requires.  Every day I come in, responsible for getting these kids revved up and every day I leave sputtering like a studebaker on empty.

But I can’t imagine another way of doing it.

Because I really care.  And it’s the care that gets me excited to show up every morning.  Working every day to help these kids learn about theater and help feed their passions for it is exhilarating in the exhaustion… and I’m learning so much in the giving.

The thing to remember though is to keep a little in my own pocket because they all pool around you, eating it up as fast as they can like happy little piranhas who poop rainbows… You can’t get mad at them, you just have to learn when it’s time to get out of the water.
