Well, we all start thinking we're going to be Romantic rock stars, but then reality hits and you realize no one reads you but other poets.
To deal with the stark reality of having hit or hurt a woman or child, to deal with the initial responsibility you have not to do that and the knowledge you did do it, can be incredibly hard.
All I can do is do my best work, try to create the best kind of moment to moment reality that I can do. That's what I do. I'm an actor. And all the rest of it is like baseball. You hit the ball. Sometimes it goes in the hole. Sometimes it goes to the player.
Hitting is an art, but not an exact science.
A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.
You are precious.
