Michael and I were discussing Buddhism, how it encourages people to live in the moment. Michael is fond of saying, “There’s no Original Sin. To be alive is an Original Blessing.” Michael is moving towards a sense of detachment from being future-oriented. He realizes the film community is cutthroat. I told Michael, “This is going to be a year of learning for me. For too long I’ve had to function with blunt force.”

Even so, I don’t feel the Buddhist detachment Michael feels. I’m in a different place. If I step back from the struggle and falter there is no one to turn to for help.

My goal is to remember why I’m here – to achieve my goal of becoming a working screenwriter without losing what little grace and consideration I have.
