This last month and a half has been quite... interesting, to say the least. As a matter of fact, this entire year has been one to truly go into the books as the most transitional. With "Diversity" being The Industry's theme, major strides made in our nation - before the obvious shift in events - and, for me, a very flagrant mix of occurrences, feelings and ideas, I believe it is safe to say that we ALL have been going through it. And through it all, we have been brought closer to a greater understanding of what we value.
Without dwelling too heavily on it, or making light of the matter regarding the current and swiftly shifting state of the nation, I have decided to place more intense focus on my creative tools and personal power to face politcal and social waves, rather than allowing the inevidible thought of it all to crumble my vision and journey. I choose to recognize the power of Art and how I and my fellow Creatives have the enormous ability to impact a People. Our bodies, our words, our minds, our intentions and convcitions are what brings millions of people to the movies, the theatre, concerts, recitals, on & on & on... So who am I to allow any degree of worry or fear to occupy the very space that can be fueled with inspriation, with purpose, with the power to contribute to the Greater Effort? I do not fear change, but rather embrace the opportunity to prove the power of Light over darkness. Until soon...
