mid-life

things are great right now
thanks for asking

well maybe not great
but you know fine at least

I haven't been writing much
ideas sure but nothing that
makes it to paper or screen

I did get new headshots
still the acting career
is in a bit of a lull I guess

I haven't drawn that perfect picture
I haven't written that perfect novel
I haven't played that perfect role

but yesterday I planted a rose
just next to the driveway

today when I got home from work
I saw one perfect pink blossom had opened

I'll take it

David Nett Portrait David is an actor, writer and producer in Los Angeles. He's the founder and editor-in-chief of CSP, and a founding producer of the acclaimed Lucid by Proxy theater company. Despite all this, he still has to hold down a day job in the dot-com world, where he does product and interaction design. His acting has been called "committed," "detailed," "fearless," "hilarious" and "heart-rending" by the LA Times and Backstage West. His writing has been called "articulate and commanding" and "eminently readable" by Flak Magazine. His tenth grade Geometry teacher said he "does not work well in groups." | more essays by David
