I have an actress coming over today to audition for a role in Dick. I lined up Sharon to read with her and I’m excited because it feels like progress to me. Once I have a date from my venue, we can dive in – except I’m still short a cast member. Small detail. It’ll work itself out.
I actually met up with Sharon at Roncy Bean yesterday. First time I saw her since early February. She asked to be an assistant director on Dick and that was the point of our ‘meeting’, but really, we spent 97% of our time just catching up.
We fell into a conversation about ‘manifestation’ – making something happen by using the power of the mind. I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. Seems kind of airy-fairy. At the same time, I believe there’s something to the idea.
Athletes manifest victory before they even take the field. People set goals for themselves and achieve them. I look inwards and I can see how I manifested Dacian Productions Inc. into being, 17 years ago. I manifested PJ and I when we were still in university.
The thing about manifesting anything, is to be careful what you ask of the universe (or God, or whatever). PJ and I are divorced. Wouldn’t trade those years for anything. Dacian and I have been at a career cross-roads for two years now. Turns out, what I thought I wanted, I didn’t really want – at least in the case of Dacian.
Sharon told me that her partner Jerry, manifested her. My thoughts turned inwards once more. I met someone whom I would like to be with. Could I manifest her into my life? Doesn’t she get a say in the matter?
Sharon wasn’t sure how to answer that, but she did say that she felt like she had a choice with Jerry. They’ve been together a few years now, and like any couple, it’s taken some work to get through some challenges. She told me that if you manifest something, you’d better be prepared for a long hard journey.
Perhaps it’s not enough to manifest something. One must offer up a commitment to it. I put the word out this morning. We shall see what comes of it.
