How often have you been driving around L.A., seen something that you would like to stop at, and been unable to because of lack of parking...the answer is disappointingly large.

When will the car situation in L.A. improve? Is there someone working on that? I hope so. I even had trouble parking at Trader Joe's today...

So yeah, Ryan beat me 53 to 89...on the easy course. It was disgraceful how poorly I played. I gave 10 trys on one of the holes. It just must have been to simple somehow...

Home for the HoL.A.days had its first preview last night. I received some helpful hints to clean up the show, so it should be looking good by Saturday's opening.

Free preview Tonight at Ark
Pay what you can Sun. Dec 4th and Thursday Dec. 8th.

Spooning [Nov. 30th, 2005|12:21 pm]
Why is cuddling called spooning instead of forking? I mean its called spooning because of how a spoon is laid in a drawer, right? Well a fork is laid the same way...I guess forking sounds like you've pinned someone...hmmm

Compartmization [Nov. 17th, 2005|10:52 pm]
I look around my room. Most notable is the amount of bags upon my floor. In total there are 9. Each of them has their own function in my life. One says audition, one work, one theatre company, one travel, one gift,one return, one life, one a gift to return, one a dark reminder, and one emptied of its components which would make it my daily bag.

...suddenly my life seems so compartmentalized. Funny "mental" is in that word. Life seems that way these days. It does not seem like its flowing, or maybe its just that it seems like the river is so swervy its hard to tell its path. Life out of the educational system is challenging. My yearning for travel is back. I currently live in a fantastic apartment, but all of my stuff just seems a little suffocating. I have a deep desire to use my resources more effectively and generously.

Also, food poisoning...sucks. I was sick for an hour last night. I was scared. I have never been that sick before. Ironically my nana is in the hospital with colon problems, so I got a little taste of what she is going through. The depth of my compassion towards her has definately increased. Health is a major blessing.

I just finished watching Motorcycle Diaries. The character of Che has the gifts of integrity and honesty. I want more of that in my life. I guess I better give more of what I want...I can't think of anyone in my life today who I allowed to be really honest with me.

So yeah... [Nov. 16th, 2005|11:02 pm]
A childhood friend of mine is on the channel four news tonight talking about the situation in Darfur...I am humbled by his committment to the problem there and also by the situation itself.

"You are only as good as your choices" April Shawhan

I keep thinking about this quote today. I feel like I am standing on the fence right now with so many decisions in my life...love, graduation, passion, faith...it is very uncomfortable living in indecision.

Animals [Mar. 8th, 2005|09:53 am]
[Current Mood |confusedconfused]
[Current Music |Damien Rice]

Yesterday in class a teacher told me that I need to express more of my animal instinct in my movement. At first I agreed with him, but the comment did not really land on me.

Later on in the day I was talking with a good friend of mine and remembered that one of the thoughts that has been pressing on my mind a lot recently is how much a human is an animal. In the crazy technology and conveniences of our modern world it is easy to forget that I am at core a human animal. That I have basic needs that no amount of metal or speed can resolve. I need air, food, water, shelter, companionship...sex...am I forgetting any? I know on some lists companionship and sex would not be relevent but they seem irreplaceable to me.

So...now I think I know where to go with expressing the animal inside, now that I have established what animals need...its funny how much this is coming up this quarter. For example in Commedia it boils down to money, food, drink, sex. All are apart of our base needs only a little more specific, ie: water-drink.

God is love. [Feb. 27th, 2005|12:42 pm]
[Current Mood |curiouscurious]
[Current Music |I Can Do Better Than That- Last Five Years]

This statement is often made by people about God: God is love.

In 1 John 4:7-8 it says, "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love." It is important to read this in context, but I will give you just this for the minute. It is times like this when I wish more people read my live journal because I really want to hear some more people's thoughts on this.

Is God Love? If yes, can the statement be made the other direction love is God?...How is love defined?

....your thoughts...I will give mine soon...

Sensuality [Feb. 23rd, 2005|10:52 pm]

Being in a play is an amazing luxury. In fact I think being a storyteller is an intoxicating job. Rose Tattoo is great. Playing a fifteen year old experiencing love and her sexuality for the first time has been freeing for me. I am inspired by characters who go after what they want. Heck yeah! I feel very alive this week.
