I've been trying out hypnotherapy with my friend, Gene - a naturopath, hypnotherapist and scent artist. We're trying to wean me off my evil neuralgia and bipolar meds because a lifetime of Lyrica, Seroquel, Lamictal and Epilim is a most unappealing prospect.
THE HAPPY NATUROPATH
My two sessions thus far have been rather productive. I feel a lot more light spirited and emotionally rejuvenated.
This week is killer.
Am shooting two films simultaneously - one, a romantic comedy, the other, a mob drama, which is resulting in work days that often start between 8 to 10 in the morning and end past midnight. I have to set five alarm clocks every morning just to fall out of bed on time.
Today's studio shoot was a hoot. We were filming a fantasy dream sequence for the romantic comedy - really campy, over the top, tongue-in-cheek and theatrical with retro costumes and smoke machines. I wore a red and white polka dotted dress, white shoes and a red bow in my hair - somehow managing to avoid resembling Minnie Mouse, while my co-actor had to dweeb it up with suspenders, a dress shirt tucked into his pants and giant glasses with thick black frames.
Tomorrow, there's a location shoot for the mob film in which my character drives a 1938 vintage BMW, which is pretty much the highlight of my entire week. Hell to the yessssuhh. I have never been so excited to meet an automobile.
Who knew my BlackBerry could take such cool motion photographs?
