5 Cool Things for you and your dreams

I love this picture. It's of me at a time in my life when I was over-whelmed with my dream. I had walked away from the career I was building in Hollywood to move to Hawaii to take two years off and raise my baby. Some days it seemed like a good idea but I had other days where I thought I had lost my mind. And I definitely had days where I thought I had lost my career.  This picture was from one of those dark days. I remember feeling so lost, scared, and confused as I walked that beach. I also remember lots of prayers and tears as I walked.  As I look back on that time it was the greatest thing that I ever did - as a man, a father, an actor, a teacher and a dreamer. I just wish I'd known that everything was going to be ok so I could have relaxed and enjoyed it all so much more.  So please relax and trust that you are exactly where you're supposed to be and if you do the work and walk the talk then  as Sanford Meisner once said, "Someday time will catch up with you and your dream and it will all come together."
