Three (now Two) From One Thousand

The actor at a table read. 


Last year, I shared this  The year before that, this  And many years before, this .  All that has been said before remains true and even more. In addition to acting and the music noted in previous posts, the man who will turn the page on his 35th birthday on Wednesday, will add a directing credit to his resume.

He has spoken at length of the challenges, the joys, and the pains of the process. And how he is enjoying every minute of it. He said, "If I can cultivate an environment where a bunch of strangers want to work together to create, then much of my work is done.

Casting (an arduous process) is now complete. Rehearsals will begin soon. And then, opening day!

Not sure I can adequately convey just how hard this guy works, how "matter-of-factly" he takes the knocks that come his way, how focused and committed he is to craft, to art, to creativity, to life and how art plays into that.

I wish my son a happy birthday (in two days). I wish his spirit and verve for life and art continues to grow.

  1. How exciting. He sounds like a special person, and a dedicated artist. I love when people surrender to their gifts and commit to their craft. I also enjoyed reading the older posts you put up in this post.

  3. Happy B-day to your eldest. Isn't it gratifying as a parent to see them fully committing and succeeding? There is nothing better than that.

    (Also, at first I thought that 35 was a typo... until I remembered that my 'kid' will be 33 in a couple of months. Lol)

      It is. So very much, IS.
