Day 30 in my lonely parking lot at the Red Hook Terminal. Little activity here but the exciting news is that Governor Cuomo says: “The worst is over!”
While we still have a length of social isolation in front of us, there is a light of redemption if we continue to stay strong and protect each other with social distancing and stringent hygiene.
The optimistic theme for me today is staying present and doing the work necessary to stay focused, cheerful and forward looking without obsessing over what could go wrong.
THE RIDE’s creative team is staying busy doing what it does better than anyone else . . . continue to create. Artists and talent focused in isolation can rustle up some interesting imaginings with their skill sets – from the ridiculous to the sublime. I am going to share a particularly amusing one with you today by Lauren Orlando, a talent who performs multiple roles at THE RIDE. Let’s just say that Lauren is missing me very badly . . . and has created a version of THE RIDE in her living room as she cannot yet re-board me!
Kudos, Lauren. Nice living room but it ain’t no 1.5 million dollar traveling theatre! LOL
Stay well and I will be back soon with, hopefully, more good news!
