As much as I love acting, my passion for it has been muted. I've haven't been feeling the crackle or desire for my main creative love. A lot of this has to do with my Sean and how it's affected my view of life.
Last night, I went out with my friend, Neo. It's just what I needed. Whenever we get together it's always a creative meeting of our minds and spirits. We mutually support, encourage and inspire each other to our highest potential. We went to see King Lear at The National Black Theater in Harlem. It was a great show. King Lear is played by Tony award winning actress Trezana Beverley. She was amazing in the role!
Neo and I both came away energized from watching the play. I arrived back home with a livelier step. I got up this morning with wings on my back. I have been flying with all kind of creative juice for my acting. I discovered a new Shakespeare monologue to work on. I'm feeling my swing again with acting.
I also got my new Jane Austen Tarot Deck!! Yipee!! I've been wanting this deck for so long. I still have to buy the companion book. (If anyone has the companion book and they don't want it, I love to have it.) The deck is lovely. I've read two of Jane's books. I have seen various movies of her novels. I won't have any problems reading with the cards. Tomorrow, I'll start using the deck for my card of the day. I look forward to diving into Jane's world and unlock all the secrets within. Here are a few images I scanned that I found to capture the essence of the feeling of the card.
This is the Chariot.
Ten of Wands and The Three of Swords
The Eight of Coins and The Seven of Cups
If you've been feeling blah about one of your creative passions. I say do what I did. Go and see your craft being done. Maybe seeing someone else do it in a show, gallery, performance, lecture will inspire you. I said yesterday we learn by doing. We also learn by watching our fellow artists at work.
I should have an audiopost of poetry either tomorrow or Monday. Look out for it.
Sweet Dreams to you all.
