New Adventures

Dear Blogger friends,

It’s been too long in writing…yet again.  Life brings its curve balls and I recently was hit with a few.

But it’s what you do with those curves that matters.  So very excited to announce that I am working on a creative project that I feel women, especially mommies/ babies will truly relate to.  Not sure when it will be done, but instead of worrying about the final date; I’m enjoying the process.

If you get a chance check out 9Bliss.com.  I wrote an article about Herbal Tea and Pregnancy and I’m excited to announce that it’s officially being published online next Wednesday, March 5th on this site.

I want to share a photo of my sassy Olivia Daisy.  She is the inspiration for my new creative project.

Sweet Dreams,

Kimberly

In Motion

Moving, Moving

I am in motion

Moving, Moving

A wave of emotion

Walking, Walking

I found a way

Running, Running

I can see the end

Jumping, Jumping

I finally feel the commotion

Leaping, Leaping

For what I have always known

Falling, Falling

For the unknown

I am in motion, I am in motion

Standing, Standing

For what I believe in

Holding, Holding

Because I am only human

Walking, Walking

In motion again

Running, Running

A steady pace

Lunging, Lunging

To the end in sight

Falling, Falling

Because I can.

 

I am in motion

I am in motion.

 

Nothing like…

…an email that reads ” Congrats! You have been booked.”  Yes, this happened to ME.  A few nights ago, I received an email with information regarding a shoot that I am directly booked for.  For those of you who don’t know  what “Direct Booking” means, let me help.   It means an audition is not necessary.  Actor needs to be prepared, follow directions and be professional.  I am seriously willing the law of attraction to show me more of these emails.  =)

Lately, I have been auditioning for Full Sail and getting my “feet wet” as a film actor.  Thanks in big part to Art’s Sake studio CORE Film Class.  This class pushes us actors to go on as many auditions as possible.  I have been truly digging it!  The amount of information I am learning is bountiful.  I am feeling a strong urge and following through with this urge to create and complete several creative undertakings.

Auditioning is not glamorous but it is fun.  I realize as an actor, what the word REJECTION means.  Rejection was tough in the beginning but now I’m a natural.  I look rejection in the eye thinking, “What the heck, when one door closes, another opens.  No biggie.”  And the cool thing is, I tend to book more jobs with less pressure on myself.  And rejection actually makes me want to push even harder.

I was thinking the other day of the myths of acting and came across a few.  Check out this website below.  It has myths listed as well as information about castings if you are an actor.

A Week’s Journey

This week was a journey.  It was a journey filled with many emotions.  Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we?  So what is the latest on my artistic pursuit of creative rebellion?  Well, lets see I started film class last week at Art Sake Studio.  Check it out at http://www.art-sake.com/art-sake.com/Home.html.  The class rocks and I already feel like I am learning more than I could imagine from one class.  The class is inspired by one of my favorite author’s Julia Cameron (author of book ” The Artist Way”).  This class encourages its patrons to attend as many auditions as possible in order to unleash the inner artist and to encourage personal growth.  So this Saturday, I went to Full Sail University’s open casting call for local films.  I was expecting to audition for two movies.  However; when I arrived there was a long table set up with about six creative projects including video game auditions.  There was a moment of panic followed by sheer excitement.  I went down the aisle and signed up for each casting available.  There I sat with five clipboards filled with information about each casting, followed by sides.  “Sides”  refers to the specific set of lines from the script of an acting project that your child (or you) must learn prior to an audition.  It took some time to organize all the paperwork, sign the releases and remember which “Sides” belonged to the appropriate paperwork.  I thought,  “If I can figure out how to organize this mess, it’s half the battle.”

I highly recommend auditioning at Full Sail.  The staff was very friendly and the casting directors were also friendly, approachable, and eager to get the best shot.  The directors were professional and provided feedback.  Check out Full Sail’s site at http://www.myspace.com/fullsailcasting.  I was there from 3 pm until 6:30 pm auditioning for five projects.  It was a long wait but worth it.  Why? Because I left with increased confidence.  I felt great about the performances I gave and the courage it took to show up.  So I encourage you to do the same.  Find the courage within to do something you’ve always wanted to do and do it, without question.

Film business has taken the driver’s seat this week.  So last night I changed it up by meeting with a friend and co-writer to solidify our song and to make arrangements to record in the upcoming week.  Cannot wait to share with you!  Mostly, I am feeling very grateful for the support of my husband and family which allows me to go on these auditions.  Our daughter Olivia Daisy always inspires and her smile pushes me onward.

It’s been a week’s journey.  It feels like this is really happening.  That I am becoming the artist I always wanted to be.

Live. Love. Create.

Day 60

Not much to say about Day 60.  Why? Because I survived through another day of being sick.  Last night I checked into an urgent care clinic for what I thought was the Flu.  But thankfully, it turned out to be a bad cold and ear infection.  Still I felt miserable. There were a few things/people who deserve honorable mention for their support.

A special thanks to my mom, dad, Art (my husband), Olivia (daughter) and to Glee.

GLEE (the show) really helped me survive while being sick.  I was able to catch up on a few episodes and I’m always inspired by this show to continue shooting for the moon (my dreams).  And of course a special thanks to my sisters and friends for your text messages which rooted for me to recover.

Day 60 marks my goal for 60 posts, in sixty days.  Overall I have 111 posts (my lucky number “11″).  I’m excited about this journey because I am creating the life I have always dreamed of, except now I am actually putting my thoughts into action.  So from here on out, I will only be posting blogs about a personal journey of becoming the artist I always imagined.  We are all children at heart.  And now I am talking directly to you, fellow blogger and/or viewer.  You can tap into your “element” and bring your inner child to life.  Do what you love to do!  Thanks for supporting and following me on this journey.

Be Well,

Kimberly

Day 11

Today is Day 11, my lucky number !!!   What follows is a synopsis of my day.  Our sweet baby girl has been under the weather since Wednesday evening.  So mommy and daddy have been busy taking good care of her.  Today I took Liv to our first appointment with a new pediatrician who is an MD but also skilled in Alternative Medicine.  It is such a relief to find a pediatrician who believes in empowering families through prevention, education and support.

I visited my favorite business for skin care this evening.  It is called The Sanctuary of Winter Park.  The owner/founder is Usha Naran who is also a friend of mine.  She is such a professional, kind and genuine individual.  I admire her as a specialist in skin care and as a person.  She specializes in facials, waxing and make up.  Also there is a wonderful lady there named Maria who is very talented and is also a friend of mine.  Maria provides many services including waxing and pedicure/manicure.   I see Maria for eye brow waxing and always leave happy!  Check out this peaceful Sanctuary that is well-known for skin care in Winter Park.

I could go on and on about my day, but don’t want to bore you today.  First and foremost, today was about taking care of our bambina (spanish for “baby girl”).  We also ran a few errands together.  The process of organizing, decluttering and unpacking is taking longer than anticipated.  Olivia keeps me laughing when life can be so serious.

I am beginning to truly miss lyric writing, acting, singing and dancing.  Mostly I miss singing, and acting.  I have the acting bug again!  So I am hopeful that next week will be the last week of serious organization mode; so I can concentrate on acting/music again.   I sing and write now but not to the extent of my soul’s purpose.  There are many changes being made on a personal and professional note; which are preparing me for this next phase.

Be Well,

Kimberly
