My attempts to overextend myself out of the deisre to fill my days wtih muted artistic projects, have only exhausted me. With a serious meditation on what "drives" me, and the truth behind some of my excursions towards nothing fulfilling, I become grateful to recognize what it is I know to be of worth.
My small but significant network of fine visionaries have never failed to provide me with ample amount of opportunities to put in motion the talents that lie under my skin. I am encouraged by these friends to enhance the abilities that sometimes lie dormant due to illness, discouragement, or even the lack of financial resources.
After a long journey into a congested city, I failed to reach an audition that held promise to easy some monetary burdes I have. Deflated and reflecting on the disappointment of not reaching my destination, the thought of participating in a rehearsal of a new work later that evening brought me the perserverance to not want to quit at this acting thing.
The return on investment was greater than what I might have earned in dollars; I refreshed my spirits instead. The evening did not dissapoint and for that I am grateful to stick with what I know.
