Joseph's Dreamcoat

Saturday night I went and watched a friend perform in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I'd never watched the musical before, and though I did enjoy it, it didn't begin to live up to my expectations, which were based on watching Oklahoma! two summers ago. Perhaps it was because I didn't know the songs and couldn't sing along. After all, when I watched Mama Mia this summer, my sisters all complained about how I sang during the entire production (so sue me!), and I loved that show!

At any rate, I attended the show by myself, and I can't believe how much I enjoyed being my own date! I almost didn't go, because every single person I asked to go with me already had plans, or had something come up, but I remembered that I'm independent and CAN stand on my own two feet, so I sucked it up, dressed like a super model (of course!) and hit the road.

Joseph was forced into being alone when he was taken from his homeland, sold into slavery, and later imprisoned. He just made the best of the bad situations, no matter where he was. He formed solid relationships with the people around him and learned to rely on God... and learned to trust himself and his own instincts.

So... Joseph and I don't have a lot in common, but we have this: this weekend I saw a new play, an old friend (though he disappeared before we got to visit- what happened to you, B?), and renewed a relationship that I don't want to ever take for granted- the relationship I have with me!


  1. Sorry I couldn't go, I really wanted to! But I am proud of you, you go you independant woman!! Talk to you soon.

  2. Miss Independent- that is an awesome song for you....
