My Dear Friend

In tumultuous times…

What is asked of the artist?

That she speaks from her truth.

That he creates from his soul.

That every sound, every movement, every word, every image is offered as if it were that artists last act on earth.

The masses look to the artist for a signal, a confirmation, a sense of recognition.

The masses look to the artist as a way to remember that they are not alone.

The masses hope and pray that the artist will always create from a place of honesty.

This honesty makes us feel safe, and reminds us that we are connected on a level beyond logic.

The masses look to the artist to confirm their right to be brave.

The artist must be brave.

Brave enough to stand in the light of the unknown and create fully.

I seek to inspire you to create from every cell in your being.

It is your right and your responsibility.

With respect, admiration, honor, and amazement at who you are – I look forward to all you have to share with the hungry masses that are ready for your truth.

Go get it!

How To Have The Best Thoughts

“I’m not good enough.” “I should be further along by now.” “I’m too old.” “I’m not ready.” “Do they like me?” AAAAHHHHHHHHH OK, look, I’ve been teaching Committed Impulse for 25 years.

The Key To Health and Creativity…. WHY YOU GOTTA FEEL IT!

What a time we live in. I’m certainly not smart enough to make any summation of where we are and what should be done. However, here is something that I’m seeing… A lot of people are shutting down as a way to deal with the pressure, fear, and uncomfortableness that is in the air rightRead more…

The Art of Seeing.

My son graduated this weekend. I am so proud of him. Proud of who he is.                         At moments like this I can’t help having flashbacks to his childhood.   We went to Tompkins Square park in the East Village just about every day.Read more…

Nicole Kidman, Jason Bateman & Christopher Walken

I recently worked with Nicole Kidman on a movie called The Family Fang directed by Jason Bateman. My first day Nicole was topless – and Jason’s direction to me was… “Just respond naturally.” That handled that scene. But as we got further into the process there was a more complex scene between Nicole and meRead more…
