Monologue Mania Day #1139 Sunrise, Sunset by Janet S. Tiger (c) Mar. 27- but for Mar. 28, 2017                              
                                                  Sunrise, Sunset
                                           A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved 2014

           (The playwright comes onstage, she is happy, and she is also....sad)

Sunrise, sunset.  I just had to steal this from one of my favorite songs - a song we danced to at our wedding.....31 years ago tomorrow.

And this year, I almost forgot.  Because I am busy.  Taking care of others, of myself, busy writing. Busy. Tomorrow's sunrise brings the anniversary, but today brings the sunset of a relative.  My brother-in-law - married to my husband's sister, he died today - on the day of the bris of his newest grandson.

I couldn't write a story with more happiness and sadness mixed together if I tried, so I will not.  I will say a prayer for his family - and a prayer of thanks for having reached this day.

Thank you, God - for another sunrise.....

         (The playwright turns to leave, stops, looks back.  Then takes out a kleenex and blows her nose loudly - hoping for a laugh, because she always likes to leave the audience laughing through tears. The end, but not the end. Just like life)
