I'm back in the United States. I'm sitting on Elizabeth's couch right now, under many blankets and boxes of greasy, American take out. I've been back for nearly a week and I have no clue what I am doing. I can't wrap my head around the life I created in Dublin - I can't zoom out and see what it all meant to me. It's too much.

So I went back and looked at all of the clips I've taken since January. I chose my favorites, set everything to black and white, threw in a song about flying away, and tried to understand the storyline that has been the last four months.

I see flowers and hands and instruments strumming

I see laughter and moving water

Breakfast tea and plays and scripts

Ice cream and vin chaude

Angelic sculptures


Empty glasses

Green grass

And blue skies

It all feels kind of aligned in my opinion.

<p>I was once told that acting is professional lying. But in my work and in my art I&#39;m constantly reminded that we&#39;re all looking for truth, whether that be the simple truth of a friend&#39;s laughter or the truth of a moment in time. And that&#39;s why I&#39;m here, to find a little bit more. I&#39;m sure I&#39;ll come across something.</p>
