“Advice to young artist
Love yourself or at least admit that you don’t until you can figure out how to…and you better learn how to.
*If you know where you’re going then you’ve already been there.
*Your destination doesn’t exist until you arrive
Take your big risks early in your career (It sets a tone for later)
*There’s a lot to be said for not knowing where your next meal might come from. It certainly helps you to work up an appetite.
*Now is all there EVER is.
*Only compete with yourself
*Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words. Pay attention to whenever words and actions don’t match.
* Listen to your heart. It won’t always tell you what you want to hear but it will NEVER lie to you.”
“The State of Black Theatre It’s in need of long withheld nourishment, and encouragement.”
