So here it is, another year. Funny how we make such a big deal out of the turn of the calendar page. Really, what’s different? Today followed yesterday and precedes tomorrow…just like usual. I guess it’s just the global agreement that this is a chance for us to start over, begin something new or improve the things that could be enhanced a bit.
Lots of actors make resolutions to do the things they didn’t the year before so that THIS year they can really get out there and work! Well I’ve noticed that the actors that have this attitude on March 7th, August 21st and October 16th are the ones that really get it. EVERY day is a chance to start again, take on new practices and get in or stay in action.
So though I don’t advocate making New Years resolutions (a set-up for upset!) I will advise you to say for the LAST TIME that this year will be different. No, it will be the same, unless you say TODAY will be different. TODAY I will do, be, execute, participate in, research, mail, practice, talk to, submit to, watch, …fill in the blank. Resolve to be resolved. Happy New Year and here’s to a FAB 2011 for all of us. Lisa Gold
