It has been a very long time since I've seen live theatre, and I very much want to while we're living here. While there is some at home, there's not often the classics, and not with the same sort of production budgets as you see in larger centres (naturally.)
Lately I've been spending time with old friends; the poems, plays, and novels that saw me through most of my life, which is what brings this all to mind. I'm feeling.. artsy.
This time of year always leaves me rather pensive even though I love it. I think it mostly has to do with the fact that I know the coming winter will be hard - it always is - and so I am trying to get most of my thinking out of the way before the snow falls. The last year, since I really went through my usual excessively introspective phase, has been a hard one, so I think this year it is even more necessary than ever to dredge up my ghosts and put them to rest.
It also so happens that tomorrow is the last day of my religious year, so it's supposed to be a time of reflecting on our previous year and purging ourselves of things that will drag us down. It only makes sense that my mind would go back to the changes over the last year and finally address them.
It also brings to mind the fact that there are only 25 hours left in October, and November is going to mess with my mind a bit because it's a year from then that I start clerkship. School is going fantastically well; my evaluations are all very good (we don't have marks, I can't post any like I did during undergrad) so it's hard to feel particularly bad about anything.
I'm just think-y and brooding a bit.
Which is why it's a good night for Shakespeare.
Also, we made a TARDIS pumpkin and it's going on our doorstep, along with the teal pumpkin (which is something you should look into if you are giving out treats this year!) This is completely unrelated to the rest of my post, except perhaps the fact that we're watching something with David Tennant in it.
