Happy New Year of the Dog! In the Asian Lunar Calendar, this is the year of the Earth Dog, bringing social challenges and evolution. That's about right. I'm still dealing with the craziness of my unsupportive condo board from being racially harassed, but 135 people attended the "Our Perspective" Asian American play reading I curated at Goodman Theatre on February 12. Talk about up's and down's.
I'm doing The Artist's Way and am reading The War of Art. I'm also fortunate to meet with a writer's group that offers supportive and constructive feedback. Removing the blocks from my creativity has freed more in my life than I anticipated, and I already considered myself a creative person. I can't suggest strongly enough for you to embrace your creative spirit and GO WITH IT. Yoga, meditation, and self-inquiry practices are vital tools to unblocking your free flowing spirit.
Indeed, this creative energy is an expression of spiritual freedom. You don't have to be woo-woo to be creative; don't over think it! Just find a way to be less rigid, less judgmental, and enjoy life a whole lot more by being creative. Best of luck and love!
The first of four staged play readings I'm curating drew 135 people! The second takes place Steppenwolf Theatre on May 21. This is history making, the first reading series of its kind in Chicago. See you at this free, fun event!
