I recently went to the theater to watch the live show, and it brought back all sorts of wonderful memories. And it got me thinking about trying things that you never thought you’d want to do.
Years ago I tried my hand at theater and did a little acting. Whether I was in a good area or not is not important, but at one point during the experience, I felt inspired to try and write a play. I didn’t have a name for it, nor did I have too many characters that were well developed. But I had an idea and I could picture parts of the show actually being performed on stage.
By the way, the play was about a young Cuban American living in Miami who was moving up the boxing ranks and training for the fight of his life. During the journey of becoming the best fighter he could be and figuring out fatherhood he was learning more and more about his parents, whom he barely knew. I actually even picture in a boxing match taking place on stage, sort of.
The moral of the story boys and girls, if you have an idea, especially if it’s in something you never thought you’d ever do, do it. Someday I may go back and finish that play or just write a whole different place. Happy writing! By the way, write, right now!
