So, first off– Hey everybody!! Just so you know, I haven’t broken my vow. I am keeping this journal regularly updated. Three months running, even!
Since my last post, “Cyrano de Bergerac” opened, ran for the month of February and closed to much applause and numerous sold out performances. My part wasn’t the largest, but my friend Jim Simpson was living out his dream role of Cyrano and he put 200% of himself into every performance. Seriously. It was an honor to share even a tiny slice of that stage each night. Being around people who radiate that kind of positive energy and letting it rub off on you is what life should be all about, guys.
And speaking of positive energy…
Since the closing of “Cyrano” I have been on a rather interesting journey. Call it getting back in gear, re-igniting the fire… whatever metaphor you want to use. The bottom line is, two years ago I let a bad situation upend my dreams, but now, thanks to some very good friends and a long lost voice of inspiration from my childhood, I’ve been feeling a strong sense of purpose again, coupled with a ever-sharpening focus on my goals.
You can get the full story over at my Tumblr where I keep my long-form entries. Let’s just say it’s been a remarkable few weeks!
Here’s a highlight to tease you into clicking on the link. Some photos from this morning’s CRAZY AMAZING Muppets segment on Good Morning America:

Here’s to the lovers, the dreamers and ME. 🙂
