Tempus Mutationes

So, it's September. The leaves are going to start changing, school is starting, the summer clothes are going to start disappearing, the weather is going to...HOLY FUCK it's hot!
I know, I know...Folks living in many other parts of the country and/or world are thinking, "Dude, stop your bitching." Okay, maybe not "Dude".

Anyway, Shakespeare Orange County was fairly successful this year, and I'm proud of all the work I put into it.
Set for A Comedy of Errors, designed by Yours, Truly.

Next year, we're going to be doing some different things, including taking a show on the road to Prague! The show is a staged adaptation of Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis, and I was honored to be asked to be a part of it. First I'm thinking: sweet! And then I start thinking this:
"Adonic- noun: a verse line with a dactyl followed by a spondee or trochee; adjective: of or pertaining to Adonis, physically perfect." 
And then I look down and see that my stomach is neither a verse line nor physically perfect.
Don't get me wrong, working all summer doing what I do helps keep me in relatively good shape. But there is a whole lot of by-god-room for improvement.

So, last week started the official beginning of my Adonis workout regimen. I got 9 months of disciplined diet and fitness changes ahead of me, which feels a bit daunting and a lot of hard work. Until I think about the diet and physical changes pregnant women go through in 9 months, and I realize I could probably do this.
Wish me luck.
