I always like the idea that I’ll run into someone I know in a random location. Or I’ll see a street sign with my name on it on my way to an audition.

Welcome to 2016.
OK, so I’m a couple of days late with my New Year’s wishes… but I’ve been busy. Busy relaxing and allowing myself time and space. Time to revel in the uncertainty of the year ahead, and the space to be ok with that.
