What's up, Internet.
Updated: Mar 18
This photo basically sums up my current existence on this day, in the year of our Lord Internet, 2021: mask in hand*, smile on face, internally screaming, intentionally cropping out the dirty mattress just outside the edge of this photo, admiring the sunny parking lot view behind a favorite taco establishment and laugh-crying at the pigeon that narrowly missed sh*tting on my head.
Sigh. It's all of that and more. Basically the full spectrum of human emotion in each and every moment. But let's just lean into it. Shit is definitely hard right now but it's important to remember to connect, get outside, and breathe in that fresh Los Feliz** dumpster air.
*...but of course my mask is always on my face
**special thanks to this Los Feliz parking lot mural
So, in the spirit of connecting...
Here I am finding a way to fill this void of not being able to hang out with all of you on stage, in the cinema or at the theatre, at festivals, at a cafe, at Disneyland... No one ever expected the life of an artist to be easy, but needless to say this challenge has intensified in our modern COVID life where we can no longer perform live and be in community with one another.
I would like to find a fulfilling way to connect with you all that is separate from social media per se, in a way that feels more joyful and authentic to me. I would like to include you on my journey both personally and professionally here, as a new space to connect. So feel free to reach out to me here.
Maybe you stumbled to this corner of the internet in a quarantined haze and do not know wtf this random Los Feliz dumpster lady is. Well, I've got news for you. I don't even live in Los Feliz nor do I regularly hang out around dumpsters. SO. Sorry if you got attached to that idea of me. Who am I? Take a stroll through my site and that will tell you just about all you need to know.
I want to keep you up to date on what I'm working on.
Another reason I want to keep this correspondence with you is to keep you up to date on what I am working on. Besides reeeally getting into investing recently, I am excited to be working on the following:
Writing my first solo album. 🎶
In pre-production for an incredible film.
... teaching my cat to fetch.
I guess that's it?
I hope to connect with you more soon. Let me leave you with this glorious pre-pandemic image of me cashing an exciting paycheck from an exciting job. Here's to many more of those to come - for me, for you - for us all. 💜
Also isn't it great that I felt the need to censor "sh*tting" earlier but then wrote "shit" full out? Just one of my many charms. 💁🏼♀️
