I'm not one to do this. I usually tell all my friends what I'm doing all the time. But for some reason these days, stuff is percolating in my mind and in my life...and I don't want to tell anyone about it.
I think of my friend, Angela. She is very private about important things in her life. I had no idea she even applied to film school until she told me that she got into Columbia. And I found that out when I told her I got into Columbia. Sometimes I take it personally, but then I remember it's about what she needs, not about me. I imagine that keeping it in helps maintain the event, life change, thought -- whatever it is -- as something precious. Things get diluted once passed through the filter of other people's thoughts, regrets, fears, advice.
So I'm taking a page out of her book. Here's to keeping my mouth shut!
