It’s Monday. Again.
I can’t stop it even if I try.
But, that’s okay because Monday is a new beginning. I like new beginnings.
And, while I can’t, or won’t, elaborate here, I’ve got some new beginnings coming.
True, beginning the publishing process for the novel is something of a new beginning. And no, the
draft isn’t ready yet so don’t ask to read it. When it’s time, you’ll have the chance.
Last week was a new beginning as I started rehearsals for Sweeney Todd. I love working on a new
show. I know I said this about the role of Watson in Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, but
being Judge Turpin will be the most challenging role I have ever had. Don’t get me wrong, being
Watson was both challenging and wonderful.
But Sweeney Todd is a musical. A difficult musical. As I said to our music director on Facebook
over the weekend “These are the worst chords in London.”
If you know the show, you’ll get the reference.

C.S. Lewis said:

I know all of this is a vague. But, consider it intrigue.
Consider it a reason to come back and read more.
Faith has new beginnings too, His mercies are new every morning.
Look up the reference. It will do you good.
As I write this, I’m looking forward to new things. But I’m also working to put behind me some
old things. Getting rid of the clutter of life. Getting rid of the things that don’t matter.
More to come on that as well. Or, perhaps more to go.
I don’t necessarily like Mondays. But I like starting new things.
And, I like the fact that something’s coming.
