What a couple of weeks, you guys. I performed La Traviata with the Cleveland Women’s Orchestra and the Cleveland Opera, that was great, and now we’re prepping for our Severance Hall Concert, which is going to be spectacular.
I also spent much of this week writing a very difficult piece which, ultimately, I scrapped. After discussing it with a couple close friends, I realized it was a piece that was important for me to write, for closure, but that it wasn’t a piece that I needed to release into the world.
Sometimes as a writer of personal essays, especially having done it for so long, it can be hard to know when to stop revealing. Because I’ve already revealed so much, it’s tempting to just keep going. But not this time!
Instead, I ended up writing this piece about things I can’t write about. I hope you read it and enjoy!
