Ok. I did it. It's time. I have declared 2017 the Year of My Artist.
What does that mean for this year, exactly? Well, that's what I'll be discovering all year long.
But I do know this: my priority this year will be creation. My priority this year will be to follow my damn heart FULLY, not restrained-ly. My priority this year will be to do not what seems logical, but what FEELS RIGHT.
I have made so much wonderful progress in this direction over the past...well, lifetime, really, but I'm gonna say my artist's journey officially and boldly took flight when I began Jim Jarrett's Meisner class back in the fall of 2007.
In 2016, I completed production on my first feature film. In 2017, we will complete post-production. This was my biggest career dream - still is, really - and I and my fellow collaborators made it a reality. And I learned SO F-ING MUCH along the way.
In 2017, it's time to stop self-denying. To stop hiding. It's time to admit it to myself: I am an artist. An imperfect, mid-process, fumbling, soaring artist (there is no other kind).
And so: what do I desire to imperfectly, in-process-ly, fumblingly create?
Ahhhhhhhh...how delicious the journey. <3
