The solace of circumstance

b1Ey6VaqnStH3MNP88SU9Bg5gCBcHTzsWHi_BMxYocLsdaX4nOPsWHHqnpW-hhqFZJtwkNQ=s101Hey, hey, hey. Last night I went to the Raven Theatre to see The Assembled Parties, a play written by Richard Greenberg (directed by Cody Estle). It’s about relationships over time.

In Notes from the Dramaturg, I found a paragraph that had to do with solace, which I will share with you.

Here’s what Stephen Johnson, the dramaturg, wrote:

“As time wreaks havoc on our dreams we have no choice but to adjust our dreams to take account of the reality of our history. And sometimes we find ourselves adjusting into an undreamed of reality full of possibility and comfort. Finding solace from those we find ourselves with may very well be the unlikely and unearned intrusion of grace into what would otherwise be an ordinary life.”

Here’s hoping we each can find the grace in our everyday life.

Peace, love, and solace
