At 4pm today I will swallow the pill necessary to irridiate my thyroid.  It feels strange, and I’m nervous.  I will be driving to the coast for the weekend so as to not expose my husband and child to radiation.  (Although no one really says what the exposure does to me, ironic isn’t it? We use radiation to cure yet it can also cause.)

I’m nervous about the rainy weather and driving in the dark, but am hopeful for a relaxing weekend, alone.  Really, it will be only one day of ‘relaxing’ as the hotel does not allow a late check out, unless you want to pay $20/hour.  Part of me is tempted to just buy another night, it would be cheaper.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
