We’re taking a pause in the middle of the audition tour, to reconnect with our lives… Hence, the inspiration for the 12th #ASQoD*
“If ya ain’t got it in ya, ya can’t blow it out.”
Pretty clear, eh?
And straight ahead into another quote:
“I used to think of Sisyphus as the patron saint of the workaholic….Until recently, I’d overlooked the true instruction of Sisyphus’ life, which is that each time his grindstone rolls to the bottom of the mountain, he is granted a rest while he walks back down to retrieve it. Though he must work for all time, he doesn’t work all the time.” Gregg Michael Levoy (Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life)
Get a life. Push that boulder up that hill, but don’t ignore those precious few minutes while it rolls back down. That’s when you become yourself, and that’s where you will find things to share with your audiences.
