I have been thinking a lot lately about a quote from Linda Essig: “Your life outside the theatre is more important than your life inside the theatre.” I have taken that as a reminder to always enjoy every experience to its fullest extent. I love the work I do inside the theatre. Yes, it’s an art and a form of self-expression, and it’s amazingly self-satisfying to share my art with an audience, but it is work. It should not consume you or define you, but be a part of you. In an attempt to practice what I preach, I am sharing a photo from my evening on Sodus Bay where I was celebrating a dear friend and soaking up every bit of inspiration this view had to offer.
