Gratitude

Laughing and joy is a blessing. Grateful.

What is gratitude? A difficult issue currently when so much is happening in the world. Protest, COVID 19 and if that wasn’t enough there was the issue of the killer hornets.

Gratitude is being grateful for what we have in our lives. Our health, family, friends, a home, food, laughter, and the knowledge to know that we will overcome these challenging times. Sending many blessings and take care of yourselves (health, love, and nourishment). Be safe.

New Ways in Entertainment

Sonia Iris Lozada – reading and relaxing during stay-at-home

Since we’ve been in a stay-at-home ordinance in Los Angeles and most parts of the United States having an acting career has taken a different course. The following are just a few of the changes I’ve experienced:

  • Reaching out to others in the industry just to check how they’re doing. In the past, if you asked it was assumed you wanted something in return and some actors did.
  • Self-taping for auditions.
  • The return of generals is great because of the opportunity of meeting and talking with casting directors, directors, and other actors, etc.
  • Seeing others in their environment.
  • A sense of comradery

Uncertain Times

Thank you to all the frontline workers. We’d be lost without you. It’s a strange time we’re living in. I’m told I’m calm but there’s deep sorrow for those that are ill or have passed. May we treat each other well. Sending love and blessings Thank you.

Research and more research

Since the holidays I’ve been doing research for a film treatment I’m working on with a producer friend of mine. It’s based on a poem I wrote from FOLLOW: Akashic Dreaming Through Time. February we’ll start writing again. This is exciting and I’m looking forward to a great collaboration.

Project: Follow

It’s been a while since I’ve signed in with anything acting. I’ve been working on a writing project for my book FOLLOW: Akashic Dreaming Through Time to develop it into a script. It’s very exciting and with a deadline of early next year to be complete. In the meantime, I’ve had auditions and I’ve traveled.  Looking forward to more news on the acting front.

Take care, be blessed, practice gratitude and kindness. Until next time.

Summer Auditions – Yay!

Summer is usually a slow time for auditions. The most you’ll see are commercials and some movies. Television shows start shooting in late July. I had the pleasure of audition for a nice role on a Showtime show. I’ll keep you posted if it becomes a booking. Fingers crossed for this or something better.
