"Approach everything with infinite love and infinite gratitude."
This summer I ran into an old neighbour. I hadn't seen her for eight years. We had one of those talks that reaffirms the good in the world. In that conversation, she told me the principles she lives by now, in her senior years. One of them is her quote above.
On the eve of our film shoot, I'm following her words. I think it's especially fitting that the evening I saw that neighbour was my co-star's birthday party. I brought her words back to our picnic we were having in the park; now I will carry them through to our piece of art.
