So many of you have reached out to me over the years and I only wish I could thank each one of you personally. But I trust you all know how much you have meant to me over these many years.
In a time when our country is very fragile, it is important that we stay together, support each other, and love each other. I look forward to the day when many of us, perhaps, can gather together. . . and dare I say. . . laugh together.
You’ll have to excuse me. . . . These times are emotional. . . as they are for many of us.
Bless you all. . . . Hey. . . . Thinking of you all. . . while smiling my love and gratefulness.
Without love there is no life. Like an actor without a role. A good play, like love, thrills and moves with the intense clarity, lightness, and inspiring awe of a mountaintop experience. It is a pilgrimage, fielded with greens, ripe berries, and clear water, out of the avenue of self to a place of unity, where ego is sacrificed for relationship, where the funniest, even the strangest things seem to be happening, a place even where there are no words, only a depth of solitude. that moment for actor and audience is forever theirs. Feeling safe and secure in this enchanted secret garden, they knew what they wanted, understood that in each other you are one, grounded, most centered, at peace, at home- not settling down, but seeking life, building a place together, not enclosing, rather a refuge, where you can touch, and hold, and know each other – even when apart. Theatre’s light of love has reached out, touching, bringing audience and actor within it’s warm glow, renewing their faith and confidence in a future, providing hope for their frustrations, doubts, and despairs. The darkness of the soul, stilled by the theatre’s light of love.
Thank you for taking me to the mountaintop. Thank you for your gift of love.
Each of you, in the best Sense, is an extension of who and what each of us is. It is this connection that leads to wholeness not only as individuals, but also as family.
