Want some insightful thoughts about performance? Or maybe an interesting / potentially hilarious story? How about just a stream of conscious rant about a Maggie Smith Quote? "Melchior's Journal" is a place where thoughtful discourse and engaging dialogue are welcome... also, silly puns and raunchy jokes. It is place where I can share and reveal some of the inner-workings of my mind...

The Blog's Title? Where'd it come from you ask? Well...                                                

"Melchior's Journal"  is inspired by a character I played in the Musical "Spring Awakening". Melchior Gabor is frustrated because the society in which he lives hides information from him and his peers. {Link to his wiki: http://springawakening.wikia.com/wiki/Melchior_Gabor} His deep desire for understanding is inspiring. His willingness to ask the hard questions, think through life's mysteries, and be brave enough to share his discoveries with those around him excite the same desires within myself. While trying to tackle the larger more tormenting thoughts of human existence (meaning of life, death, love, faith, nothingness, desire, expectation) this character still finds time to talk about items of little consequence, to joke  with his friends, and fall in love* with a girl (* Theatre Nerds, You can debate this with me later). "To my mind..." is the way he starts most of his journal entries. I think that is the way I would like to start my entries on this site. After playing this character, journalling has become a daily practice for me. That being said, this is my first real attempt to BLOG, which "To my Mind" is something like an online journal. (*Blog Nerds, You can debate this with me later). My goal with this blog is to talk/joke about the inconsequential and silly; as well as try to shine light and ask questions about the hard problems. Although, I should warn you... to quote Frost... "I am never more serious than when I'm joking." And by the inverse, I am never more 'jokey' than when I am serious.
