After an eventful day of driving that involved really good jerky, a wondrous place called Gem World, and some free-style operatic singing, Grant and I finally arrived in Tucson for our first-annual Actors Compass Retreat. The open road is always fun but the fact that we on our way to a weekend of creative pow-wowing and flexing of dev muscles with Shannon made the little journey all the more exciting.
Technology makes distance between friends and colleagues a non-issue in terms of keeping in touch and being productive but there’s nothing that can replace the real-life experience of Shannon’s magical breakfast cabbage-and-sweet-potato hash or midday tequila shots with plenty of snuggle time with Leo, the official AC mascot.
We’ve had our breakfast, we’ve played with Leo, and we’ve taken the tequila shots. Let the retreat begin.
