This Blog is sometimes like my confessional!
I’ve been hard at work this month doing a number of things while everyone in the business seems like they’re on vacation, or their clients are. Everyone deserves a break. Vacation is so absolutely necessary.
It’s been a fantastic year, and a relaxing summer to an extent…But I’m ready to ramp it up again!
I’ve been taking care of the garden this summer. Weeding, watering, fertilizing, and harvesting a bumper crop of tomatoes, beans, peaches, eggplant, pumpkins, onions , herbs, and zucchini has had me doing a ton of food processing.
I’ve been making soups, salads, casseroles, drying. You get the idea,
Heck, if you have a garden, you’d better not allow the harvest to go to waste. So we’ve been eating a lot of fresh stuff lately around here and it’s all good.
I am certainly glad I work from home and my business hasn’t been super busy with deadlines. Like I say, August has typically been slower in general, before the fourth quarter madness. I can feel some kind of vibe that the industry will become very busy. I always hope and pray it will be for me as well. I try to never pray for just myself, but rather, for others or about specific situations.
I’ve had some special intentions I’ve been praying and meditating on fervently as of late.
And what’s been occupying my working hours as far as voiceover, is a ton of auditioning. Like my friend Bob Bergen says, “Auditioning is hard work”.
And there has been some quality stuff arriving in my inbox from all sorts of places. The obvious desire is to create something from the opportunity before me. And book!
So as the summer winds its way down, as me and my family eat the “fruits of our labor”, I’ll continue to audition better each and every day, and keep praying with each one I send out.
Eat, pray, audition. And not necessarily in that order.
