With everyone sitting at home day after day it occurred to me that some people may be feeling what I was feeling a few years ago when I voluntarily left my job.  I questioned my worth if I wasn't in the rat race.  I felt worthless for a while after changing directions....

It Just Goes to Show You

I’m pretty lucky sometimes.  While playing tennis at Mom’s retirement community I met a guy who has connections.  He casually mentioned that his buddy directs a few episodes each season of a hit Netflix show.  I went home with that info but didn...

Why You Shouldn’t Call Yourself a Survivor

Do you label yourself a ‘survivor’?  Have you overcome difficulties, even tragedies, in the past?  You probably have.  Most of us have.  There’s nothing wrong in saying “I survived an abusive marriage” or “I survived an alcohol...

I've never seen criss-crossed contrails before.  I had to take a picture.  And because I'm in the habit of looking for meaning in things, I assigned a meaning to this view of the sky.  X marks the spot.  I took this picture while on the set of the TV show "Power"....

New York City is my acting school for the moment. It teaches technique and professionalism. Working up close with some of televisions best actors is a master class in on-camera skills. And putting in the hours, the repetition, in the heat, waiting for the fire engines...
