It’s the start of a long weekend and I’m feeling curiously jubilant. Maybe because I’m starting a class tomorrow that I’m looking forward to. Maybe because I feel at this moment as if threads are starting to come together, like I’m waking up after a long sleep.

Whatever the reason, the song that keeps popping up on my iTunes at the moment is “Defying Gravity” from Wicked, sung by Idina Menzel as Elphaba and Kristen Chenoweth as Glinda. It is the first act closer, the moment when Elphaba makes the choice that changes the course of her future. Then, a friend linked to the following video, done by y_fish on LiveJournal for the women of the Serenity.

Maybe it really is time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap. After all I won’t know until I try.
