trying new things

Trying something new everyday is a terrific way to keep the mind flexible, and my friend Laura Plumb returns to this practice often. Case in point... my first paid on-camera gig for a political ad. I'm playing an environmentalist mom here, right in my comfort zone. For these three lines we must have shot 25 takes from different angles! Bob Sly was great to work with, very low-key and professional. It's also my mom's birthday this week (one of the big ones) and she's flying to Maui for her first real vacation that I can remember. Talk about being open to trying new things! When she grows, I grow, and that's how we change the world... one horizon opening experience at a time.
