A letter to ourselves from the beginning of 1,210Km

Junction 25 members wrote the following letter to themselves collectively, as a way of reflecting on a year long collaboration with Theatre an der Parkaue in creating 1,210Km.

 

Dear Junction 25,

Are you liking the year so far?
It can only get better from here. 

The last year has underlined what has been alive for you,
it’s been full of surprises
and you have learnt lessons you could have never 
foreseen.
The friendships you make will be wild and great,
the 
memories you make will be the ones you cherish the most in life.

It’s going to be a long year,
you probably won’t remember the 
beginning when you reach the end.
This is going to be difficult but 
it’s also going to be a lot of fun.

My advice is to relax a little,
even when you don’t think you’re 
doing it right
or things are not what you want them to be – keep 
going.
Take every day as it comes, change your mind and trust 
yourself.
You’ll do better than you think.
Just enjoy what is happening in the moment.
Yes, it might seem stressful at times, but in the end you will be here,
thinking about 
what the past year has held for you.

You’ll remember it forever.

Over the course of this year I feel you have changed a great deal
and the memories of this process are landmarks of that change.
You have become more interested in your own future;
where you 
want to go to uni, where you want to live, what you will do.
Being 
part of this has made you realise your own potential
and made you 
excited to travel, to meet new people and make new memories.

Are you liking the year so far?
It can only get better from here.

I just want to know what happens next.

Much love,
Junction 25
