We had an amazing casting meeting last night…

February 14, 2010 at 8:50 am (The Tempest Updates) (, , )

… for The Tempest. Tomorrow (Monday) I start making phone calls.

This morning, I’m reading from a new book of poetry – a Valentine’s gift – One Hundred Poems From the Japanese, edited by Kenneth Rexroth, and I’d like to share one with you…

I go out of the darkness

Onto a road of darkness

Lit only by the far off

Moon on the edge of the mountains.

Kuraki yori

Kuraki michi ni zo

Irinu beki

Haruka ni terase

Yama no hi no tsuki.

by Izumi

At first blush, this poem may seem ominous, but I feel it’s hope.  You know that the path is dark and unknown, but you keep going.  See the beacon of promise and let it draw us forward.  It’s about being on the path as much as it is about attaining that edge of the mountain light.

I look forward to our journey together.

Optimistically,

Susan Scot Fry
