An email from the Philadelphia Phillies which started with the promising subject heading "Phillies appearance request for Philadelphia Youth" ended with a body stating "we have decided to pass on this project. Good luck."
Wow. Devastation. I'm not exactly sure what didn't interest the Phillies community relations department about Allstarz! a program designed to give words of encouragement to kids who are actively engaged in their communities. But, hey. I guess it's collateral damage and at this stage of my budding writing/directing career I know I should expect a fair amount of rejection. And with that in mind, I'm sure down the road I will be thankful to the Phillies for having helped me grow that thick skin needed to survive in this industry. Then again, I may choose to never forgive them. Right...inhale love, exhale fear/anger/rejection/anger. I think I'd better not skip yoga today. Yes, and meditation in the hot, hot sauna..
