It is difficult to determine the cause of grass fires. There is usually nothing left behind when we get there, like a cigarette or a gas can, for us to determine what started it.
Putting your hands in the earth is very grounding, if you'll excuse the pun.
There are parts of me that I keep secret even from myself. I have demons and I'd love to be able to healthily look at the demons and still be a wonderful actor and not feel I need them to create.
I think we all have madness in us, it's just that I've realized mine and found a way to let it out.
Welding torches, cutting torches and any activity producing a flame outside is prohibited. Any open flame is discouraged.

I graduated from high school in '62 and I didn't know any people who were gay. I'm sure there were people, but I didn't know any. For years and years, I guess, I was very uptight about being a gay actor. I thought it would make me less hirable.
