How to Find the Perfect Day Job

Happy New Year!

I came across an article in Backstage that really hit home for me. The bottom line is this: Why should your day job interfere with your own performing gigs. Do they? Why or why not?

Check out the article below. Maybe you agree or disagree. Truth be told, my experiences give me a rich varied set of skills that acting alone could not offer. My music led me to acting. Maybe I’ll share my story in another blog entry. What say you? My hope is that there are responses to this article. Written by Erin Cronican on January 4, 2013. Whew…2013 has arrived!

The Word made Flesh

John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

I went to church today and saw this scripture and it hit home for me. “The Word made flesh…” I’m taking it out of context but that’s how I feel as an actor (singer as well). I take the words and present my self as the person’s vessel to communicate their needs. Character sounds too much like caricature. What we do is extremely important in society. We show people in society how they are.

When you think of acting (and lyrics), this truth has great responsibility. It’s funny, sad, exhilarating, honest, gorgeous, beautiful, painful, and fruitful.

Acting and Music is not for the faint of heart. I pray that I don’t faint (or travel my life and end up with a cold heart). It’s an honest betrayal of people who I have to respect no matter their walk of life. God help me in my task(s) in every way.
