In June, our family came together for a wedding that was held in my backyard. Every inch of the house was consumed with the wedding, and we worked hard to make it a beautiful event.
People came from all over the US and as far away as the Philippines, and it was fascinating to see the family come together.
Family dynamic is a wonderful thing.
While you might get along with everyone, you still hear the stories of the family members who don’t get along well. But when you put these people in the same space, suddenly, they’re talking.
I found myself intrigued to know that whatever was said in the past was right here in the present forgiven. I wanted to know more. I found myself becoming involved in the family dynamic.
Ironically, a new project that I’m involved with emphasizes very similar family issues and broken relationships.
The script features extended families and those that have been through multiple divorces. It deals with a lot of confusing relationships and how things are handled.
As I read the script, I was blown away by the similarities from the wedding I observed last summer.
I was most drawn to a specific character – the jealous husband. This kind of guy drives me crazy. I think it would be fun to play the part of someone I’ve always wanted to choke out. Lol.
