I’m sitting in a theatre in Dublin, Ireland next to a beautiful girl from Brittany, France watching a theatre production developed and performed by American university students. The lights are dim, the seats are raised above the stage, the wine and food are plentiful, and there is even a free wine reception after the play.
This is going to be a great night and I can’t help but think about the fact that I never could have imagined that I would be here doing this. Every once in a while I try to stop living in the moment and to take a step back and reflect upon the amazing series of events that have led to this moment and the unlikely connections that have caused my current situation to come about. Basically, it’s about not taking my current situation for granted and realizing just how lucking I am to be doing what I am doing.
