Holy Cow! FRAMELINES has been nominated for an Emmy! To be honest, I thought the two Telly Awards were gonna be it. This summer I might have to have a metaphorical menage a troi with all my trophies. I’ll get family Christmas cards made in July with me, the cats, and the awards. I’ll send them to everyone I’ve ever known (take that ex girlfriend!!! You coulda been with an Emmy Winner!!!) Just being nominated blows my mind. It’s a real award. Sure, I’ve won a ton of little awards from small to mid sized festivals, but this is an EMMY. This helps the resume and makes for a nice feather in the cap.
Even with an Emmy nod, my family wonders when I’m getting a real job. These things don’t bother me. It’s like being an atheist in a minister’s family. To say I’m the black sheep is like saying that New York has a sizable population; it’s stating the obvious. I’m proud of what I have done and what I am doing. I get to do what I love to make a living and not many people can say that.
I think the universe is giving me signs. Where I was a year ago and where I am today couldn’t be more different. Karma exists and she’s treating me pretty damn good about now.
