Ash-Land of my Dreams

23 Sep

And just like THAT, I’m relaxed and feeling great.

The change?  I WENT ON VACATION, BABY!

My boss serves on the board for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, OR.  He and his wife own a condo in Ashland and were kind enough to invite me to stay with them for a few days and see some shows.  I spent four days wandering the town, shopping, watching their dog play, seeing fabulous theatre and having wonderful conversations with interesting people.  I saw productions of INTO THE WOODS (fabulous), THE GREAT SOCIETY (fabulous), RICHARD III (solid) and TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA (meh), came home with two fabulous new dresses and some lovely accessories, spent an afternoon with a coconut cream tart and my iPhone camera at Lithia Park, tried homemade lemon basil ice cream (delish), and slept the sweet sleep of a lady who doesn’t have a damn thing to do except see plays and window shop.  For four days, I was living the good life with really, REALLY good people.

Now I am home and back to the grind and busy busy busy–but my heart is happy for having taken some time away.
