moving along…

the goal was comprehension, and the only way to comprehend the world was by making myself vulnerable to it so that it could change me. the challenge was to lay myself open to everybody and everything that came my way. the prize was to change and grow big enough to feel one with the whole world. the real danger was death by exposure.

finding balance

i’m dedicating this year to finding BALANCE in my life.



   life is no straight and easy corridor along

which we travel free and unhampered,

but a maze of passages,

through which we must seek our way,

lost and confused, now and again

checked in a blind alley.

But always, if we have faith,

a door will open for us,

not perhaps one that we ourselves

would ever have thought of,

but one that will utimately

prove good for us.

Like a book and its chapters, as one year ends, we eagerly await what the new one has in store. I am so excited for the new year!  I’m full of ideas and I can’t wait to get them out into the world.

I’ve learned a tremendous amount in 2010. And I’m hoping to learn so much more in 2011!

I love the process of age and time. I have come to accept them and they in turn have given me more wisdom. For that, I am truly grateful.

“Every film I’ve done has benefited from me coming up against lack of time, money, or whatever is thrown my way, because it suddenly brings out the best, most creative moments for me.  When you’ve got resistance, it focuses you on what’s important.  Everything is equal to me until somebody says ‘no.’  ‘What do u mean, ‘No?’  Why?’  And now we’ve got something to concentrate this energy on and you solve the problem one way or the other.”
