Standing Laundry List of Past Events

I’m sitting in the production office, stealing time away from the day to put some words together.  As I’ve said many times in this space, I get twitchy when too much time passes between articles.

So… what to say?  Lots has happened since Wednesday.  I took in a spoken word performance on Thursday.  Found it quite moving.  Words are powerful things, and when a spoken word artist wraps them with the embrace of their touch, they become something more.

Friday was spent on set, spending time watching time being spent.  I shot an interview with Evan Bird and stood around a lot while sharing my camera with the camera department.  Not much could be done about that arrangement, but it was still a bit frustrating.  I have a hard time watching people work when I’m not doing anything.

Three movies are crewing right now.  There’s a place for me on each of them.  Only one of me to go around though.  I don’t quite know where the best place is for me to wind up.  Perhaps I’ll just leap and see where I land.

I’m learning a lot about myself these last few weeks.  My ego is something that continues to get in the way of my happiness.  I need to feel like I’m in charge of something, cuz then I’d be important.  How fucked up is that?  I look back on my life and I can see that type of thinking woven into every major decision I ever made.

Gotta get a handle on that.  I also gotta get another scene written soon.  It’s been on my mind quite a bit.

Well… back to it!  I’m interviewing Vincent in spurts through out the day while trying hard NOT to be in anyone’s way.  Funny.  I was so nervous about interviewing Julia Ormond last week.  Now it just feels like a routine — not that I’m belittling the experience.  I guess it’s just the difference between ‘being in the moment’ and ‘worrying about the future’ presenting themselves for display.
