‘Attitude of Gratitude’ observation for Sunday morning

I am grateful for community theater. It’s truly amazing that so many talented people would invest so much time and effort to put on a dazzling show—and receive zero in financial compensation in return.

We saw a production of “Man of La Mancha” last night in a delightful open-air theater. And it was a gorgeous cool and dry summer night, too!

The music was fabulous; the singing and acting talent were first-rate; and the plot of the show was, well…if you’ve ever seen it, you know the “La Mancha” storyline is about as weird as it gets. But because of the music, it still was a powerful and moving experience. The singers/actors on stage and musicians in the orchestra have so much talent! 

I am very grateful the missus and I had to chance to attend. And I’m very grateful so many talented people choose to share their gifts with others, even though they don’t get paid.
