From My Heart, Mind and Soul....

Just when I thought it was over....

Life can be really crazy at times. Just when I think I've come to the end of something, I'm hit with a curve ball. And then I end up scratching my head. It sure isn't fair.....but, I'm thankful for the ride.
 
Last night I had a conversation with a girlfriend who was encouraging me. She stated, "Girl, you really don't know how good you are." She was speaking of this last play that I directed. And, perhaps she's right. I mean, to me, I'm just doing what needs to be done to accomplish a certain outcome, but to her (and apparently others that have been talking recently), it's the way and the style that I do it. She began to compare me to some known directors stating that I was just as good. Hmmmm, I don't know about that. LOL! But, she did get me to thinking.....
 
Maybe she's right. I have studied acting. I'm an actor and have become known as an actor's director, meaning that I direct the way that I would want to be directed as an actor.
 
I really only fell into directing in 1999. When preparing to have my first play produced I was in search of a director. I was frustrated because I wasn't able to find what or who I needed. My oldest brother, Mark, suggested that I direct it. He stated, "This is your baby. No one else received the vision that you had for it." And he was right.
 
So, now, many years later, I have much more experience under my belt and have matured into a director who can get a certain outcome in a more encouraging, inspiring way rather than threatening and throwing things. LOL! That's another story for another time.
 
Until then....
 
Always,
DMC
