I support the arts, I love the arts – I am artsy! What can I say, while I was working in the business world, I was always craving something else, “what was missing?” I would ask myself? As it turned out, it was my artistic side that was not being fueled.
Working with artistic types is so different. So much passion for what they do, in fact I have so much passion for what I do (or am trying to do) now.
We are put on this earth to live, but what does that mean? What is life about? You can get very philosophical when answering this question, but for me, I like to keep it simple!
We are here for a finite time, so what do we want to accomplish? If you have been reading my blog and even following it, you already know that I want to live, enjoy, experience and do good … surrounded by friends and family.
I hope to live my life and make a difference. That is, to make a difference to the world, the people in my life, and the people that I come in contact with. I want to leave the world a better place.
I have written before about personal growth and pushing oneself in order to grow. This has been my mantra and so far I feel that I have been doing this.
After completing my first acting course (Acting Level 1) last summer I could really feel how much I had grown. During Acting Level 2 this winter, I noticed that I was now often the first to volunteer for an exercise – this was the complete opposite of my first course where I was afraid to make a fool of myself. The end goal of this level was to perform in scene in front of friends and family. Mine was a scene from “The Prisoner of Second Avenue”, the scene where a husband and wife find out that their apt has been robbed.
So many of my wife’s friends and other mothers at school go up to her and ask “What is wrong with your husband? Is this his mid life crisis?”. One of the mothers always goes up to my wife and is fascinated with what I am doing, she would never allow her husband to do these things and in fact does not want me to be a bad influence!
Next in my life experiences my friend suggested we go to the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. the largest event in North America with approximately 350,000 people attending a 3 day electronic dance music carnival over 3 nights (Friday to Sunday starting around 7pm and ending at 6.30am the next morning).
