I feel like every Rosh Hashana I have spent my time in Temple trying to think about my life and the whole significance of the universe. There is a whole theme about Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur relating to the idea of dying and being reborn. Today I felt like I was reborn and it was a spiritual experience outside of the synagogue. I decided to take a walk by myself all around the Tuscan hills where I live. I walked by tons of vineyards that were incredibly beautiful. I even happened upon a horse and I felt at peace. It is interesting because all of the people on my program have started coupling up and I am spending this time discovering myself. I want to find another person and I am sure I will, but I definitely don't think that they will be from this theater program. I am also really glad I am doing this now because if I had waited until after college I think that nothing about me would have changed and it was more than high time I stopped to take a look at my life and myself as an actress and artist. I love theater and acting and this trip has just reinforced me into believing that I really cannot see myself doing anything else, however this does not mean that I necessarily have to live in Los Angeles. Today was a wonderful sunday of doing nothing and loving it and I look forward to more time to really start understanding myself and where I fit in the world around me. Before I was afraid to really do things alone, but I am not scared anymore and I see that I am just starting on my journey.
