I was so disappointed as the week drew to a close that I didn’t expect to be able to pull together my 7 Quick Takes for the week. I have had a love-hate relationship with this practice: first I wrote posts of 7 random things and found it very difficult to come up with something. Then I started writing themed lists (How to survive a Boston snowstorm in seven easy steps, 7 observations on the death of Margaret Thatcher) which take forever to write, but which turned into a very organized, regimented way for me to process the world.
A well thought out list is not in the cards for today. I’ve had a cold and been on vocal rest, I’m in rehearsals for The Sound of Music which opens next weekend, I had two guest posts to write, I finished a fantastic book (The Glass Castle), I’m still trying to process the marathon bombing and subsequent investigation, last weekend was packed with church gigs, and I have tons of lines and music to learn for upcoming shows.
Now that I look at it, those are 7 reasons. So there you have it, albeit quicker takes than usual!
