If I stage my life out as a play...I may be nearing intermission.
Act 1scene 1 was my youth about 1-10 years old. Basically being born and establishing character.
Act 1 scene 2 was adolescent 10-20s. Learning what to do about that character I developed, falling in love and starting a family.
Act 1 scene 2 That was raising that family and keeping my kids alive through my childhood.
This next part I'm starting.... this is new. My kids don't need me to keep them alive just give them a place to live and some food to cook. I'm not going to be a grandfather quite yet, but that will inevitably by the next stage. So while it's kind of an intermission (waiting for the next battery of actions to happen) I am considering this Act 2 Scene one. If my life is anything like "Into the woods" this is where things could get dark, but I'm aiming for "Spam-a-lot" and looking on the bright side of life.
