It's shortly after 7am, Sunday morning, and I'm sitting somewhat comfortably in the beautifully spacious new terminal at Toronto Pearson Airport, waiting patiently for the boarding call for flight AC 791. Its a vacation, but also a work retreat. I've never taken a vacation alone before, and I though to myself, "self, where would you like to go to feel rejuvenated, renewed, and rewarded" and the answer came quickly. Los Angeles, California. Why would a city girl want to visit another bustling city for a va-cay? I'm treating this as a 'creative retreat' of sorts, and taking a number of acting classes and workshops, as well as auditioning for the Groundlings comedy training program and scouting theatre venues. In my over-scheduled version of life, I'm actually taking at least one class almost every day! I'm hoping to use some of the studio time to develop the character for my upcoming one-woman show, Dairy Free Love while re-charging my batteries with some warmer weather towards the end of depression season (winter!). If any of you happened to catch the sunrise over Toronto this morning, you got a real treat. I give you, 'Toronto at Dawn'. Next stop, LAX.
