Sometimes things move too fast, you need them to slow down so you can catch up, be ready in time. Sometimes so slow that you wish you could grab the reins and turn a trot into a canter. Inevitably the things that seem, in the moment, to move at a frustrating pace are at the exact speed necessary for our journey - but life is a cruel teacher; it gives the exam first and then the lesson. So these statements can only be understood with the benefit of hindsight. Theatre challenges perceptions, building a theatre pushes you to the limits. So as I trudge through the hundred plus emails I have received today, while the floor comes out on site and decisions about programming hang in the balance I take a breath and pause for a moment. It's going to be okay. All in good time.
