First off, Happy Pride! I'm very excited for today's parade!
I had another theatre reading this week and an getting ready for two more for next week.

First off, Happy Fathers Day to everyone who celebrates it!
I'm getting ready to do another theatre reading and an upcoming shoot. Can't wait for both! I've missed being part of the acting/rehearsing/auditioning process so much, so I'm happy the world is opening up for it again.
"You can be drinking the wine today, but picking the grapes tomorrow." - Jonathan Tucker
The theatre reading was excellent! We're going to be doing another one for the same play next week and hopefully taking the show a step further. Can't wait! I also had a great film audition a few days ago, so things are looking up.
"Some movies you fall a step behind and some you stay in the same place, make the same choices. And then sometimes there are people who know more than you but show you, and that's the maximum you can hope for - doing that with someone who says, 'I like you for what you are, and I want you to be in my picture.'"
- Jake Gyllenhaal
I'm going to be acting in a theater reading on Thursday! It will be at 520 8th Avenue, so if you're in NYC and want to see new theater in the works, come see it! I'll post full details within the next day or two.
"Go where you are loved. People who see the best in you bring out the best in you." - Lupita Nyong'o
I'm booked to act in a series of theatrical readings starting this Friday, booked as an actor for another playwright who also wants to do readings and start a theater company, and I have an audition tonight!
"We all come to the theatre with baggage. The baggage of our daily lives, the baggage of our problems, the baggage of our tragedies, the baggage of being tired. It doesn't matter what age you are. But if our hearts get opened and released - well that is what theatre can do, and does sometimes, and everyone is thankful when that happens." - Vanessa Redgrave
I had an awesome shoot this week! More details to come, but it feels so good to step back into the creative world again!
"Understand that we are all co-creators of our respective destinies." - Mahershala Ali
I'm too tired to think straight, but that's just being whiney, so never mind on that.
I hope everyone reading this is having a happy day
"The only way you can influence your fate is to put your soul into your performance and hope it registers with the audience."

Happy Mothers Day to all the mamas, grandmas, aunties, and mamas-in-spirit!
I got my 2nd vaccine yesterday and am happy the side effects are not so bad (I'm tired and my arm hurts). It means this will likely be a day of relaxing at home watching movies, but I'm okay with that. Well, that and playing with Major Buttons. He's insisting that I stop blogging right now and play with him, and that's in-line with my responsibilities as a cat-mom.
"You know, if we put all the colours together it makes it more prettier. Even a rainbow has seven colours."
I got new headshots! Very happy with them and to have gotten to work with the wildly talented photographer, Shana Schnur, to make it happen.
Now I'm getting ready for another audition, then getting my second vaccine shot next weekend.
"I just want to work with good filmmakers and do good projects that mean something to me and play interesting characters. That's really it." - Dylan O'Brien
I'm feeling good after another great audition! Getting ready for a Zoom rehearsal in a few days for a show I will be in when theater reopens this autumn. It's great to see the world coming back here!
"You can't rest on your laurels. Because if you go in there and stink up the room, they go, 'They gave that one an Oscar?'" - Octavia Spencer
