passionate, honest, bold observations about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (read: property) from a los angeles lioness longing to be a unicorn. theatre. dance. laughs. love. passion. faith. strength, excellence. chaos.

same as you?

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil.

Real men stand for what is right, what is good and what is true. Real men use their voice to change worlds. Real men take ACTION. Thankful for real men like my husband and @toureroberts tonight. #ferguson  (at One Church International)

SHE is a forager. She is delightfully stronger than she ever imagined. She is passionate and stops at nothing to secure her future and the future of those she loves. She is funny as hell, and bursts into inappropriate laughter at every given chance. She is learning to be patient and exercises this with the most fragile: the old, the young and animals. She doesn’t wear skirts that resemble petticoats or tutus, though sometimes she might, just to keep you on your toes. She is adventurous and says “YES” before any of the enemies of opportunity (fear, ego or comfort) have a chance to interject. She probably drinks like a fish, but she’s fun, so no one objects. She dances and her curves follow the syncopation, knowing she’s being watched. She breathes deeply and settles into herself. She is able. She is ready. The ladies restroom simply said “SHE.” (at MESSHALL)

Last day in Valdez, Alaska and I’m going to miss waking up to this view and working with the cast of “EUPHRATES.” I love my life and I’m so, so grateful. ❤️
