I've been BG silent for the past week and a half.
I have not disappeared.
I have not died.
I was directing a short film in Canada. This is what the BG work is supplanting after all, so I felt it was okay to take a break from the blog/essay writing. I returned this week, exhausted in all ways and instead of words, these stills are what I have to share:
Shooting this film has been a major experience and I'm really glad to have had it. There are so many stories filled with the most interesting of characters, both fictional and non, that I look forward to telling for the rest of my life. But that epic saga will be a whole other entry, mostly because I'm still figuring out what I think (and hope) I learned, but also because I'm tired as fuck. Nonetheless, I have been through the rain and I return back to NYC and back to BG life stronger than I was before, like a captain steering a ship home through a storm.
And what a magnificent storm it was.
