To evolve, to love, to offer ourselves to what each day brings... this is the journey life takes us on. Acting is merely a template to rehearse the different possibilities that could arise as we traverse this journey. I learn from each character... from each story. And isn't this why we've come to inhabit these creative vessels we embody? To gather a full spectrum of experience and to impart the acquired wisdom upon others? I feel lucky as, in a sense, I get a condensed form of experience with each character I co-create. If I'm fully present for the lessons available to me as I live through them, I'm able to glean true wisdom from their seemingly pretend experiences.
