I do a lot of writing. I write scripts, I write songs, I write rants in journals, I write lists for projects I'm working on. And of course there's the countless e-mails, texts, and social media posts. Recently, I was taking a look at my writing and reflecting on what I do in the world. Yes, I'm an actor and a singer and an uncle and a friend and a volunteer, and, and, and... but what is it that I really do?
The answer lives in the connections. Connections between me and the people I interact with in each role. Whether I'm laughing with my nephew, acting in front of the camera, or reading a story to a group of seniors, I'm striving toward a deeper connection.
And at the root of that is love.
I've decided to embark on a new project. I'm going to write about love for a hundred days. Romantic love, platonic love, hot chocolate love, film love, or unhealthy love. All of it. It may include pictures; it may just be one word. At the end of the hundred days - December 26th - I'll see if there are any changes in me. I also intend to take a trip at the end of the year so it seems especially fitting that I have my heart set on the city of love - Paris.
I invite you to read my musings and encourage you to let out your own. We are, after all, connected.
