Thinking, when acting becomes overrated

I’m always thinking. It may seem odd but sometimes I feel that I’d rather think than act or speak. So I think, then I write it down. Quite crazy, indeed. But I’m better off thinking and then writing than blurting out thinking without clear thought over what it is that I’m saying. The writing helps me to understand how clever what I may say actually is – when I read it. As for acting, I only like it as a performing art, that’s all.
Hairy situations can bring joy, too.

My's growing. Good God, in a few months I'll look like I took a time machine to the '70s (and see Kool and the Gang, preferably).

My hair…it’s growing. Good God, in a few months I’ll look like I took a time machine to the ’70s (and see Kool and the Gang, preferably).

It’s either you’ve climbed the mountain and are now exhausted or you’re still preparing yourself and saving the energy.

Quite self-explanatory to be honest.

It’s either you’ve clim…

Every writer’s secret I guess…

ph.d. in creative writing

As writers, we live double lives: lived once in the world of others, and again, in the quiet of our own minds. It takes a certain amount of will and courage to leave with regularity the circle of humanity in order to enact a kind of theft, which is one aspect of what the writing life seems to be.

Sorry Parton, but i’s too true. >.<


The fact is, I don’t know much about how movies are made.

(I attended a screening of a documentary once and afterward, at the pub, I spaced out when the film types starting talking about film Things.  I was startled back into the fray when one of them said, “Oh, well, Cindy doesn’t know what a camera dolly is.”  Truer words).

[Don’t worry:  I don’t actually care all that much about what a camera dodi is.  As for the documentary itself…I think it was about, like, The Earth or something].

But…yeah.  Lighting, zooms, cuts and, um, bird’s eye view?[1]  That pretty much sums up my knowledge of how a movie is put together.

Or if you will, “film”.

Hey, though!  I like story.  Lessons learned, morals, that kind of Thing.

I’m the kind of person who wonders if a million coincidences does, actually, a movie make (Forest…

‘Til Sweats Do Us Part.


This One B.

I sneakily snapped this photo over the weekend during a ferry ride from Edmonds to Kingston.  They really are a sweatpant match made in heaven, aren’t they?  I wonder if this is their anniversary and they’re celebrating it by wearing the clothes they wore when they met 25 years ago, hairstyles included?  Hey, at least you can tell they’re true Northwesterners  — they’ve got their Tevas with wool socks. Right on, sweats couple.  You’re one of us.
