ASK

When I was thinking about the changes that I want to make this year, the work ASK came to mind. In an effort to limit embarrassment, pain or being a burden, I have made a habit of trying to come up with the answer or solution myself. Whether that is anticipating someone’s answer or justContinue reading “ASK”

Own it! (Part 3)

It’s been a long time since I wrote on the subject of “owning it,” but I am realizing it will be a reoccurring theme in my life. I first talked about taking ownership of my pursuits(Part 1 & Part 2) back when I came down to LA for my first short-term stint. It was aContinue reading “Own it! (Part 3)”

The 100 Day Project – 25 Days

I am 25 days in to The 100 Day Project. YAY! I am so glad that I started doing this and am grateful to The Great Discontent for initiating this. They say that it takes 21 days to create a habit.

It is a challenge to commit to making something every day for 100 days. It could be anything, art related or not. This idea got me reallyContinue reading “The 100 Day Project”

Fry and Laurie’s Masterclass in Shakespeare

As I’ve already shared, I’ve been doing a lot of research and reading of Shakespeare lately. The other day I ran across this video, which in the middle of all the seriousness(and absolute excellence) of Sir Ian McKellen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sir Patrick Stewart and Dame Judy Dench, is the perfect reprieve! Watch and enjoy. Fry and Laurie:Continue reading “Fry and Laurie’s Masterclass in Shakespeare”

What You Do Next

A couple weeks ago, one of my best friends left the United States to join the Peace Corps in Zambia. She will be gone for two years. We usually only get to see each other about once a year, but still this was a very difficult goodbye, knowing our contact will be extremely limited. SheContinue reading “What You Do Next”

Entering the Marathon

Over the last couples years I have been going back and forth between Seattle and LA. My LA stints have ranged from 3 days to 4 1/2 months. Now I am a permanent resident of Southern California and it feels good! For as much as I have accomplished in the last couple years and asContinue reading “Entering the Marathon”

What I learned about life and art from JM Barrie and Peter Pan

Just finished working on my first devised work, “The Boy Who Couldn’t Grow Up”. What an amazing experience! Working with this group of people to tell a story about the tension between childhood imagination and adult relationships was inspiring. It was an incredible journey, from walking into rehearsal the first day with nothing but ourContinue reading “What I learned about life and art from JM Barrie and Peter Pan”
