Cut to: March 13, 2015
This morning I drove onto the Universal lot, parked in my designated parking spot outside of the sound stage where I began rehearsals for my very first job as a series regular actress on a TV pilot written by the creator of Hot In Cleveland. Every seven minutes a tram full of tourists pass by my car close enough that if the driver veered off just a little, he would scratch it. As it approaches, I can hear the tour guides on their microphones reciting the script that I learned 30 years ago. Every seven minutes I'm reminded of how far I've come, how many times I've wanted to give up and how blessed I am for each and every step that I took to arrive at this magical place in my life and career. Today I cry tears of joy not tears of disappointment.
Be A Star Where You Are.
