|Greg & Stephen...after all these years|
But here is where the age comes in. I swear I can recall my going through that like it was yesterday. I was attending all those NY auditions and being told "NEXT" and sometimes getting the job. But now, I'm the older one sitting there on the other side of the table and sharing words of wisdom with such eager and enthusiastic ears...one can see why people love to teach. I work on a college campus - but I'm not directly involved with students in a setting like this. With those that love theater in the way I did when I moved from Texas to NYC. You can see the hunger in their eyes and the desire to make it in the business. The joy of studying what they love and I found myself grinning ear to ear remembering that feeling and secretly reliving it again.
I may be older and I may have a few tidbits to share...but I still love that youthful feeling one gets when they do what they love. Stephen is a wonderful professor and I'm thrilled he gets to live his life in such a creative way. I'm just as happy that my road has turned through the years, yet allowed me to stay creative as well.
And even if the clock says I'm getting older...it's awesome to capture that feeling of youth by being around those who are just starting down their trek. What a great feeling for this guy who looks in the mirror and sees his dad staring back. That same dad who drove him to the airport at 18 to fly off and start his own journey.
What a great one it's been, Dad.
