They say “Hamilton” is an amazingly mind-blowing Broadway show.
Often enough, I disagree with “they.” But in this case — holy cow “they” are right. It’s absolutely freaking ridiculous, and the songs have been stuck in my head for a week. Like:
“There’s a million things I haven’t done – just you wait.”– Alexander Hamilton
“Why do you write like you’re running out of time?”– Ensemble
“How lucky we are to be alive right now!”– Eliza Hamilton
“I am the one thing in life I can control.”– Aaron Burr
It’s all so good – and so freaking true.
You ARE the one thing in life you can control, and if you’re like me, you have a million things you haven’t done yet. But you’re still alive, which means you still have the chance to DO them.
I’ve gotten a few things done, but so much still to go.
DONE: Write a weekly stepmomming column for the newspaper. I’ve now been doing that for 1 1/2 years – over 80 columns!
NOT DONE: Publish my first novel (and follow it up with two more). That…is presently on the back burner so I can focus on my art.
DONE: Have an art show.
NOT DONE: Have art as a steady source of income.
NOT DONE: Put together an Etsy shop of my original art pieces.
NOT DONE …
A million things I haven’t done. But just you wait. Just you wait.
