Because of the County Council laws, I was only allowed to perform in Starlight Roof for one year, and that year flew by. On the day of my last performance, I was so choked with sadness, I could barely sing.
The company gathered at the side of the stage and applauded and cheered, and as I made my way back through the audience and wentround backstage, they called words of encouragement.
“Well done, Julie!”
“We ’ll miss you!”
I remember rushing past them in floods of tears and sobbing my heart out in my dressing room. I honestly thought that was the end of my career, the end of all the fun, and that I would never work again. I recognized, quite sensibly, that I might just be a flash in the pan. I’d sung the great song that I could sing; I’d done what I was asked to do. What
on earth would there be out there for me ever again? I really thought, “That’s it. Now I have to get on with life and be just an ordinary girl.”
同时，我也想到了在今年四月份的时候，当我完成了我本科阶段的最后一个项目，和组员们一起最后一次聚餐结束之后，我也有过同样的感觉：心里空落落的，感觉自己的价值和所有乐趣在这一刻全部停止了。。。最后我选择了和大家在这个论坛里面见面，也许在这里可以体现出我的另一部分的价值吧。。。When the lord closes the door, somewhere he opens a window.
