It's not easy being REEN

Life in Hollywierd

Saturday, February 23, 2008


Well, since I have some free time on the show----working only 3 days a week- I decided to sell my fab. skills as the hostess with the mostess--for none other than COKE---since it is Atlanta and Coke it IT here. This is me talking about how Coke is strategically placed by all the other products in the store and how important that is for the coke sale.
I was very grateful for this job. However, I know there was a point my life exemplified a little more purpose than this.....
.......wasn't there?

The quote coming up is the second (or maybe third) most important
thought I have ever shared with you.

I hope you read it more than once,
and carefully--and there is even one sentence in it that is more important, and more electrifying, than all the others--and think about it, and act on it.

Some people, myself included, think
John Cassavetes was the greatest
American filmmaker ever.

He said this.

"There is a compromise made if you
work on a commercial film, and the
compromise isn't how or what you
do, the techniques you use, or even
the content, but really the compromise is beginning to feel a
lack of confidence in your innermost thoughts. And if you
don't put those innermost thoughts
on the screen then you are looking
down on not only your audience but
the people you work with. And
that's what makes so many people
working out there unhappy. They
say, 'Well, I'll make a lot of
money and then I'll come back and
do this later on.'The truth of the
matter is, of course, that they
never do. These innermost thoughts
become less and less a part of you,
and once you lose them you don't
have anything else. I don't think
anyone does it purposely. It's just
that a lot of people are not aware
of losing those things. I found
myself losing them, too, and then
suddenly I woke up by accident, by
sheer accident of not getting
along with something, with something inside."

Something told me today wasn't too
great a day for you.

Something told me to write and encourage you.

So, I am.

So many prayers are being said for
you...well, you have no idea...well, you have every idea,
but you know what I mean.

I wish there was more I could do.

But, I know I am doing my utmost.

So, let that encourage you, and
know that--as always--you are seen.

Your talent, your heart, your being.

All seen.

And loved.
