wicked(ly greatful)

we just drove in from a totally wonderful trip to nyc and a viewing of the broadway hit- "wicked".

i think it was the best play i've seen- acting, costumes,special effects, sets, but most of all the theme and lessons that ran through the whole production. i was completely taken away to oz and became part of the story. the beautiful, strong relationship between the 2 leading ladies touched me and showed that regardless of circumstances around you, love for others shines through.

how much influence do we have in the molding of others lives? this is a question that was raised in my mind and i am more aware of the possibility of this influence and of the influence of labeling. do we live up or down to the labels given to us at a young age?

what a wonderful story of different kinds of love.

the drive in to n.y. was great. we came towards the holland tunnel and saw the statue of liberty closer than i have seen it (except for actually going there). what was that lump in my throat? you can't deny the pride that you feel when you witness that symbol of our country and the freedoms we enjoy .... great day..
