It’s Never Too Late!

Today. I did not do my journaling in the morning as I do most often because I had to be downtown for the writing groups. I shared my blog entry from yesterday with the journal writers but I did not have a poem for the poetry group.

After that meeting, two of the people from the group who had taken Improv lesson at Second City, led a class on it. So far it is only scheduled for once a month but I am sure it will be expanded to probably once a week. We had 32 people signed up for it. Not all were there but most were. 

I knew a lot of the people from the poetry and other writing groups I am in, the Goodman workshop I attended early this year, or the talent show I was just in last week. It was fun to see them all together. There were a lot of other people I did not know too, but we all came to have a good time and we did.

Four people volunteered to play a talk show host and guest and anyone who wanted to could call in with a question. They did a great job. I couldn’t even think of any question to ask, but I will get more involved at other meetings.

Some of those who came today said there used to be an Improv group and the center years ago and that had been in it. I was not aware of that. I don’t think the people leading it this time knew that either, unless the director of the center told them, and it was before she got the position.

Not only are they saying we may have more frequent meetings, but they are also proposing that we include Improv in the talent show next year, or have a program of our own. That would pose a dilemma for me. Would I sing, dance again, read a poem I wrote like a couple of other people did, or do an Improv skit? I’d like to do it all but we can only do one act because of the number of people that want to take part.
