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.
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.
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.
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.
Happy to announce a YouTube channel for my acting is in the process of being developed. Looking to have it up and running by the end of November, early December. Looking forward to producing short vignettes covering anything and everything acting. It should be fun. Here’s a sample.
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 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.
Yesterday I recorded several of my poems from FOLLOW: Akashic Dreaming through Time at SAG-AFTRA lab. As you know acting includes voiceover and it’s fun. Recording the poems was my practice for audiobooks. Here’s a clip I recorded while practicing. This is a rough draft and the final voiceover corrected line misreads, pauses, and other audio issues.
