Reaching

I was babysitting the other day.

We went to the park.

And there was this little boy

He was SO CUTE!!!

He wanted to play on the rings…

like the other kids…

He REACHED up…

But he wasn’t quite tall enough.

So he went and got something to stand on…

He REACHED up…

he was trying SO HARD!!!

So SO Hard!!!


he SO BADLY wanted to reach!

REACHING

GRABBING….

STRECHING up as much and as HIGH as he could…

So close…

SO SO CLOSE!!!

But nothing...defeat… he couldn’t reach.

And I thought…

I know EXACTLY how you feel!!!

Sometimes It is so hard!

You SEE exactly what you want…

The righteous desires of your heart…

It is possible!...

It HAS to be....

cause you see other people doing it...

You do all you can to reach up…

To grab…

To stretch yourself as much as possible…

And you want it SO BAD it hurts!

And I wish it was only about playground monkey rings…

but what I am reaching up for in life extends FAR beyond the playground.

I know how you feel little boy…

I understand!

CHAOS

Theater Mitu performed CHAOS in Abu Dhabi this spring...
(this is the experimental theater company that I have been interning with)

I got to help assist in the costume design for the pre-production design here in NYC before they went out to Abu Dhabi...This is a beautiful short trailer of the show!
