Act. Write. Repeat. #goodvibesonly
Read for a big bomb of truth telling.
What are you creating? Just three weeks from now, I get to play again... with a brilliant crew, incredible actor friends, and a script that spilled out of me just a year ago. It’s taken shapes and forms I did not foresee, and has stimulated and challenged my imagination in the process. I love to act. I love to write. And I love to direct. Anyone who tells you you need to stay within the lines of familiarity is operating out of fear.
The tagline of this film is “friendship knows no boundaries.” Before, it was “hold on tight.” Interestingly, I have found the need to create boundaries with others throughout this process, and throughout my time spent here in LA. Life imitates art. Hold on tight? I was afraid of boundaries with folks I called friends. I held on.
My metaphorical raft crashed. I let go and pulled myself out of the water. I established boundaries and now stick to them. Some went bananas. Some slithered out silently, a few went radio silent, and a few understood. The truth is, boundaries show you who will still be there when the water is still and when they can no longer ride a wave. I’ll tread water with them any day.

Read this for a boost.
I am a soul in a body that makes mistakes and has questions about life. Separate the neuroses from your noble spirit. Meet your spirit and mind in the middle. Remember this experience of being in our mortal meat suit is temporary, and that the little things we agonize over (in my case, spelling errors... seriously.) are in fact meaningless in the face of the Universe.
We move quickly and are hasty to doubt and burden ourselves with anything other than the love we owe to ourself and to each other. Question your decisions, question your routines. Question the things you say to yourself in the mirror.
Note to self and those who need it.

to last weekend when I spent my #birthday
listening to my grandpa play at an old folks home upstate. This man came from the humblest of means and taught himself to play the guitar by ear. He and his brother are still in the band together to this day and now that they no longer do it professionally, they use their talent to entertain and uplift senior citizens in the community. So much talent and humanity! This video is just a teeny snippet of the evening.
And my grandpa? He’s not just a ham, he’s the whole 🐖. If you want to know where my love of performing came from, look no further.

This is not my cake, but it IS my birthday. Setting my intention and making my wishes! Happy and grateful to be spending this time with family.
Thanks for another trip around the sun, Universe!
