Today is an historic day.
Today on this lonely archipelago at the bottom of the world (or top, depending on how you hold the map), while the world around us is ravaged by Covid 19 and humanity holds its breath to see what will happen next on a patchwork of red and blue 'United States'; something momentous has happened...to me, personally.
Today I vowed to no longer be an artist who doesn't make, a writer who doesn't write, an actor who doesn't act and a 'this' that doesn't 'that'.
Okay, so I admit that I can be somewhat prone to exaggeration from time to time (I have actually been a busy bunny of late with various performance opportunities coming my way); but in truth, I have been a wannabe writer my whole life who has allowed fear of rejection and failure to stop me in my tracks before putting pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard.
So, this historic morning, I made a commitment to myself to begin my blogging journey, a journey I have been dreaming about for a long, long time. Today I have (finally) chosen to be accountable to myself. From this day forward (at regular intervals, as I feel moved to) I will share my stories, my life experiences, my artistic endeavours, my hopes and dreams, my failures and misgivings. Its time to unlock the creative soul that has been kicking and screaming to be released all my adult life.
I welcome you along for the ride, dear friends. Please feel free to prod me if you think I need it. I may even take requests...who's with me?
