Every miracle in my life began with gratefulness…
Miracles surround us. I’ve seen many of them come to fruition in my art, in my relationships – all leading back to the spiritual work I’ve done.
Creativity, today in the form of acting and writing, is just another branch of my spiritual work. I’m responsible for one thing – getting my art out into the world. And, if I can stay out of the results (Sometimes easier said than done, ;)) life is less stressful.
I remember what spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson said in “A Return To Love” —
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world… As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
I’m an actress. I’ve always been an actress. Fantasy is my home. It sometimes doesn’t work so well in real life, but in film and TV it can be quite a healthy obsession.
Writing became part my art in my 30’s. The teacher of a creative writing class I took said I had talent. She invited me to a writer’s group in her home and voila my first novel, “Queen of the Druids” a Fantasy (what a surprise, LOL.) was born.
I wrote and produced “Dating In The Middle Ages,” a comedy with medieval Fantasy (I see a recurring theme here!) elements, after having to get back out on the dating scene when my seventeen-year marriage ended. The uncomfortable, albeit funny dates I experienced became humorous fodder for the show. DITMA was the silver lining to my marriage ending. It was also a chance to work with friends, and heal through acting, dancing, and singing. A true miracle.
My production company, Rogue Cowgirl Productions, Inc. produces comedies and dramedies and our latest project is “A Couple’s Playbook.” ACP is a witty ‘he said, she said’ take on what works (and what doesn’t) in romantic relationships. (But we really try to stay away from Fantasy and into reality there, LOL.)
And most days besides acting, writing and producing I also try to be of service.
I’m a Reiki Healer, and I’m also in a 12-step program that focuses on teaching one how to have healthy relationships with ourselves and others. I met my current boyfriend as a direct result of working the 12 steps, and it is the healthiest, romantic relationship I’ve ever been in.
I also mentor women going through break-ups and help them get their lives back on track.
But Acting, Writing and Producing are the sunshine to my being.
