The Journey Begins with the First Step

Greetings, friends. I’ve been on a vacation as of late. A bit of a creative vacation, I guess you could say. You see, I’m at a creative crossroads. I’m turning 40 in 10 months and though I largely consider myself to be “successful”, I haven’t quite found my place in the larger, creative world. And I’d really like to.

I’ve embarked on the 12 week journey known as “The Artist’s Way” in an effort to reclaim and recover my creative self. I’m one week in, and so far it’s been enlightening, to say the least. While I’ve spent most of my adult life pursuing work as an actor, I feel I am much more than that. And I feel my “success” will be somewhere else. This is my attempt to find it.

So, friends, I hope you’ll consider walking along with me on this journey of self-healing and self-discovery. I’d like to share my triumphs, epiphanies, failures and ruminations with you. Perhaps some of them will resonate with you.  Perhaps we’ll all come out of this a little better – more fulfilled, more introspective, happier and more at peace.

Here’s to those first few steps!
