I hid in an isolated stasis, watching as everyone around me seemed to move forward. Being an actor is not the sole definition of who I am, but it is what I do--and ordinarily, it is a labor I love dearly. I had to find a way to shift gears. I knew I wasn't serving my work if my heart wasn't in it.
As soon as 2016 arrived on my doorstep, everything changed. I sat down and wrote new material--inspiration landing in my lap from some unfamiliar portal. I shot some of it! (See: REEL). I fortuitously was accepted into a class I had been trying to get into since September. Pilot Season began with aplomb. And in a heartbeat, I realized I was back. Returned to the place inside myself that permits me to do what I do purely because I love it.
Marianne Williamson says: 'Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be...aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.' #Truth
P.S. Thank you to everyone who diligently searched for me in HBO's Vinyl Pilot! Working on that show was such a dream & I truly respect the final edit.
On that note--take it away Lucius! So excited for their sophomore album, Good Grief, to come out this week!! xx
