At least I have my health

I have been working for a little while now on a production with a small theatre outfit here on Long Island. Since October I’ve had a sudden reawakening of my desire to pursue these things that make me feel like myself and of course acting is one of those. I came back to New York after a trip to Virginia on Halloween weekend and immediately looked up several theatres on the island. Well I got this gig. It has not been a very professional process. That has been a major disappointment, but the play is good enough and I’m getting to where it’s time to really start pushing and pulling this role. I’m getting to knead the dough a bit, and that is great news. Rehearsals were not something I was looking forward to very strongly until earlier this week when suddenly something turned a corner and my actor-brain turned on. It felt like reviving a long-since still and silent, rusting tractor engine. It clatters to life and you’re not sure whether to celebrate or dive for cover. So far I’m just continuing to work. The important part is that I’m feeling on the right path.I’ve decided to start blogging through my endeavors for a few reasons. First of all, I need something to mark the progression of my days. I have always been a journal writer, but in recent months it has become clear that I need to invite some social pressure to motivate myself. The most important reason why I’ve decided to write this blog is that I’m opening a new chapter in my life. Not just in returning to my passion for performance art, but in a more specific way as well. It is my hope that this blog will record the creation of a beautiful, exciting, and unique undertaking. I won’t go deeply into it in this post, but suffice to say there is increasingly specific talk of a project that could grow to be the first major work of my professional life.
For now it’s back to work on what’s in front of me and enjoying the holidays with family and friends.
