Woke up thinking about courage this morning, for some reason.
And I'm thinking of all of the incredibly brave actors I've been able to work with over the years. It's the old definition, being brave doesn't mean not being scared, it means being terrified and yet you keep going.
And I think of the courage of some writers, those willing to lay it out on the stage.
And yes, there are even some brave producers out there, not enough, but some. Those willing to take a chance on a new voice or follow some director on a dark dreamquest clear, at first, only to the dreamer.
It's no fun to be afraid, but sometimes that's the only way you know you're doing something new, I guess.
So let's all go out there and spook ourselves good, what do you say?
