Hello there, and welcome to my very first blog entry ever on allisonmack.com. This whole computer and Internet technology thing is very new to me, but I am excited to finally be stepping into the 21st century and utilizing all the amazing opportunities that now exist to communicate with so many people and share tons of new thoughts and ideas. To me, that is one of the most beautiful things about the Internet. It really allows us the chance to get to know people from all over the world and truly see the humanity in everyone.
So I have decided that for my blog, I will present a quote a week. The quote will be what inspires me to write. I will basically be sharing what the quote means to me, and I greatly encourage all of you guys to share what it means to you. Something I find so fascinating is the endless amount of perspectives one can get on any given topic or idea. So I will give you my perspective, and I hope that you feel open to giving yours.
OK here it goes…
This was said by one of the greatest peace leaders of all time, an amazing man filled with so much wisdom that he was able to triumph over one of the most powerful countries in the world without ever lifting a gun. It is interesting because this has been a favorite quote of mine for several years now. I have walked around saying it and attempting to live by it without ever really taking the time to sit down and figure out what it means to me. It seems so simple; just act in the way you would want to see others act, but I find that this is one of the most difficult things for me to do. I am always reluctant to take responsibility for the way my actions effect the rest of the world. I am the first person to say, “Oh well, it’s only me in this big world. How is my behavior going to shift anything?”
So there is the “quote portion” of the blog…now onto Smallville news…
As we embark on our sixth hiatus, I can feel the energy from everyone start to diminish. It feels like the end of a very long sprint, and everyone is ready for a water break. Hiatus always comes right when we are about to fall over with exhaustion, and so the whole team will go our separate ways and come back refreshed and rejuvenated, ready for another year.
It’s funny, for the first month and a half I have off, I don’t even want to think about Chloe and “Smallville,” but about a week before we are supposed to start shooting, I always get this jolt of excitement and I feel like I can’t wait to know what is going to happen next. I guess that is a pretty good indication that I love what I do. It is sometimes hard for me to believe that I get paid to do this. I am so stinkin’ lucky. I haven’t booked another job for the break, but there are some interesting prospects, and it is always nice when I can spend the summer tooling around the world and doing some lovely “introspective sessions.”
OK… I guess that is all for now! Hope everyone checks in next week for the second edition of “Allison Mack’s Blog.” TAAAAA DAAAAA!!!!!
