Building Up and Tearing Down Walls

I tore down an acting wall today. It felt glorious! Not pushing, just being. Letting a moment in a monologue “be” but taking it somewhere. It’s a tug and pull of give and take between “want,” “feeling,” and “honesty.”

I’m an actor.

I sing choral music.

I do audiobooks.

But I’m an actor.

It feels good to know who I am. Glad that I’m reminded of that.

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.
