It’s almost like my internal fuel tank is running on reserve. With only a few litres of energy left, I’m hoping that God and good luck will see me through the next few hours! After that, the world will change for me… because, starting the night of August 19, I’m taking my first real holiday in over six years!
OH… MY…GOD! What a whirlwind of activities and emotions in the past few weeks. It’s all been such a high… a rush of anticipation, followed by bags of nervousness and finally the heady whirlwind of success and acceptance for Kaminey! After all that… WHAM... straight into the wall of exhaustion, a sudden draining of everything but my fighting spirit! It’s actually quite a strange place to be… you’ve got the success but the fatigue sends you into spirals of fogginess and bouts of slightly flared tempers. Hey… I worked so damn hard for this and I just want the energy (for mind and body) to enjoy the spoils.
And so common sense took over (not to forget some very angry parents and friends) and the plans for the holiday were magically put together. And now suddenly… I will have days where every minute, hour and day is mine… to do what I please! The anticipation is infectious and I can honestly admit that no matter how much I loved every moment of what I was doing… I needed this and more importantly, I owed myself this! So adios amigos… for now … see you on the other side… refreshed and renewed!!!
Before I go… a big, large, super humongous shout out to you gals and guys out there who have been so supportive and encouraging. Given all the obstacles we’ve faced for Kaminey, all the messages of positivity is what kept me going. And then the overwhelming response to the film and the renewed showering of love and support… Thank you so much. Words can’t begin to express how special it is and how grateful I am. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the film!
