End of an Era

These tickets are for a very special event:

The very last Wicked at Helsinki City Theatre on May 14th.

It's going to be so amazing! A little bit sad too, of course. I appreciate musicals and theatre acting in a whole new way now: It really takes a lot of talent to pull off a role week after week. I wish that someday I would have the courage to act on stage too. No, I don't want to be a professional actress or anything, I just want to know how it feels like. Oh well, we'll see what happens... : )

On New Year's Eve I'm going to see Wicked for the 6th time. It's sort of funny that my life has changed so much since the 1st time I saw it in September. Some of the changes have happened because of Wicked (well, at least the fact that I'm spending ridiculous amounts of money to see it again and again) but most of the changes have nothing to do with it. I've grown so much, I've experienced a lot of new things and now I'm seeing the world with different eyes. 

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap.

It's time to try

Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down! 


I'm through accepting limits
'cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost! 


So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately:
"Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly!"
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
Take a message back from me:

Tell them how I am

Defying gravity

 I'm flying high

Defying gravity
