Things I Miss
When I feel overwhelmed, I find making lists incredibly calming and satisfying.
I have no clue why, but I learned long ago to not judge what works, but rather go with its flow.
So in the spirit of going with my list fetish flow....
here is a partial list of things that I miss, in no particular order:
*My niece and nephew. Their squishy cheeks and contagious joy...
*Going to sleep not worrying about taking off my make-up. (ah, those were the days... pre-puberty)
*Life without social media.
*Phone calls. Long ones into the night...
*School! Yes, really. school is wasted on kids or teens or college students. In my 30s I can't think of a better party than anything nerdy that expands my brain...
*Live television. I mean, I know it still exists (it does, right?!?) but who watches that since the Netflix streaming revolution?!?
*My teen years' hutzpah. I know too much now, and have lived in the US for too long...sigh...
*Believing I would win an Oscar at 18. (Clearly, I had high expectations from myself)
*THEATRE. (Really really really miss theatre, my first love... my first community...)
*Every house, apartment and room I ever lived in. Why is it the we develop such intimate relationships with... walls?!?
*My childhood dog, Pinchi.
*My grandparents. Wish I could know them as an adult and not take for granted my limited time with them.
*Every set I've ever been in. (Really really really miss being on set.)
*Being a child. Seeing the world from a child's eyes, and the deep knowing that comes with.
*Every boyfriend I've ever had. (Well, in second thought... maybe not ALL of them.)
