Things I did for the first time at 60 so far

If you’d told me ever that I’d be singing in a musical improv class and having FUN, I wouldn’t have believed it. I can’t sing. But singing instead of speaking in an improv scene justifies my movement on the stage (I´m very physical) and I enjoy that a lot. (español abajo)

I never thought I’d get into that cold plunge pool, but I was filming a reel and thought “it would make good content” and so I did it and survived. 😀 It wasn’t for long, but I said I would never do it and I did.

Today I bought a pull-up bar because ever since I interviewed @ginnymaccoll for @vivafifty, I haven’t been able to get that out of my head. “Start with a pull-up” – and welp, here we are. My physical goal in my 50’s was a handstand and I did it. Now it´s doing unassisted pull-ups.

Sketch-writing … that’s something @phildiederich wanted to do and we can finally do it together after a year and a half of weekly improv classes.

At 60 I do have the feeling that time is running out, and I don’t want to die with any music left in me. So far I feel I’ve done pretty well trying new things throughout my life, so why stop now?

What have you done lately that you didn’t think you’d ever do?

Si me hubieras dicho alguna vez que estaría cantando en una clase de improvisación musical y divirtiéndome, no lo habría creído. No sé cantar. Pero cantar en vez de hablar en una escena de improvisación justifica mi movimiento en el escenario y eso me gusta mucho porque me muevo mucho. 😝

Nunca pensé que entraría en esa piscina de agua fría, pero estaba grabando un reel y pensé "sería buen contenido" y así lo hice y sobreviví. 😀 No fue por mucho tiempo, pero dije que nunca lo haría y lo hice.

Hoy compré una barra de dominadas, porque desde que entrevisté a @ginnymaccoll para @vivafifty, no he podido sacármelo de la cabeza. "Empieza con una dominada" – y bueno, aquí estamos. Mi objetivo físico en mis 50 era hacer el pino y lo logré.

Escribir guiones de comedia … eso es algo que @phildiederich quería hacer y finalmente podemos hacerlo juntos después de un año y medio de clases semanales de improvisación.

A los 60 siento que el tiempo se va acortando, y no quiero morir sin haberme atrevido a probar cosas nuevas. Siento que me ha ido bastante bien probando cosas nuevas a lo largo de mi vida, ¿así que por qué parar ahora?

¿Qué has hecho últimamente que no pensabas que harías alguna vez?
