I am thankful for:
My smile. It comes from my mom and it's my best professional calling card.
Being continually surprised and delighted by new talent in Boston.
Friends. The ones who know my non-theater related self as well as my actor/director/administrator self. It's important to remember the balance and have people who can appreciate me on different terms.
Dedicated artists who have made Boston their home for better or for worse and continue to work here because there's no place they'd rather be.
My family. Always.
Officially being able to say, at this point, I have spent half of my life involved in theater.
Macaroni and cheese. I think the obsession started the year I decided I hated turkey at Thanksgiving. It was a life saver. And we've seen some great times together.
Feeling a sense of commitment to my work and feeling appreciated for that.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, and take some time to take stock of the things you are thankful for.
May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.* Apache Blessing
