I didn't watch any new movies or read any new books this week. Instead, I was working on the scripts for two readings that I did this week - "The Merchant of Venice" and "Alice in Wonderland."
Other than that, I did two work sessions with John Basil. What goes around comes around, so it was more work on Isabella in "Measure for Measure." This one's a tough nut for me to crack. I was not happy with my performance two years ago, so I keep bringing her back to various classes and work sessions. I often feel like I'm not doing enough with her. John suggested that she might just be a little too close to the real me, perhaps that is why I push and want to do things instead of just be. Well, that makes sense: being in this part feels too easy, it's hard for me to trust. It was good for me to examine that this week. I sense that I'm now giving myself the room to love the unloveable parts of Isabella. I was aware of all this before, but not fully able to submit. It felt good to work on this character again.
