“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” Theodore Seuss Giesel
Amen to Dr. Seuss!!
It’s not easy to follow his advice though, what with all the judgement hanging around out there and how we really don’t want to be embarrassed or humiliated. Ever.
But one of the advantages of getting older is that some of us get bolder and take more chances, because it turns out that even though things get messy sometimes, we also get to have a lot more fun. Or at least, I do.
I’m headed to Los Angeles tomorrow. First, to go to the Applied Improvisation Network Conference at UC Irvine. (Imagine a whole BUNCH of Cat in the Hats getting together to actually study how to be more outrageous and present in the moment.) Then, I’m going to hang around for a few days and pitch my movie script to whoever I can corner. Should be an interesting week.
Unfortunately, I have to miss my 45th (!) High School Reunion to do it. That would have been amazing fun too. Choices. (sigh)
Here’s a cool video from Denmark – part of my prep for LA or Towanda, PA (when I do manage to get there). https://www.facebook.com/JayShettyIW/videos/1748936578754133/
