Love v. Love: Follow your heart!

At some point in your life, based on how young or old you may be, you’ve either said this yourself or heard it from someone…and if you haven’t…now you have. “I love what I’m doing, but not doing what I love.” Not only is that I believe the KEY to life, it also is valid at all times within this profession, simply because there are SO MANY forms of art and performing art.

Vote, cuz it matters!
