Life feeds me.
Like a David Mamet play with words and staging unfolding as I go. At the edge of my seat, I lean in closer. Pay attention. I breathe in landscape and colors around me. Open myself and tune into Cosmos and Universal sound. I commune with Spirit, preferably near a laptop where I can get it all down and rework the words in such a way to honor rhythm and connection.
On stage becomes me. Direct connection to Source and art, merges me with the highest. Acting is yoga…I search for beauty in everything. I get off on dark, subversive, off-center. I’m turned on by Rob Zombie’s horror, driven by Tim Burton’s slant, and imagination of Edgar Allan Poe. The dark feeds me. I love to work when twilight gives into eve. The moon and energy of night conspire the crafting of my offering. I lead in the revolution – more art illuminating more truth. I believe in free will and power of the people.
“Silence the artist and you have silenced the most articulate voice the people have.”
– Katherine Hepburn
Words come to me – I hear things, feel a certain tick to a character and work with that. A voice says something — one line and suddenly a whole project birthed out of it. That one voice… I am resourced, by Light. I move with Divine flow. Sing to the Mother, Kali, Krishna, Jah and Jesus. I sit in silence, prayer; and there, too, find Art.
