Hollywood is a very volatile place where artists come in, and they essentially say they want to belong. Its incredibly vulnerable to be an actor and also get criticism at a young age when youre formulating who you are. Weve seen a lot of people fall victim to that, and its very unfortunate.
We are always in the space in-between... all the spaces where you are not actually at home. You haven't arrived yet.... This is where our mind is the most open. We are alert, we are sensitive, and destiny can happen. We do not have any barriers and we are vulnerable. Vulnerability is important. It means we are completely alive and this is an extremely important space. This is for me the space from which my work generates.

My writing flows out of my doctorhood. They are not separate things. They are one. I think the foremost connection between being a doctor and being a writer is the great privilege of having an intimate view of ones fellow humans, the privilege of being there and helping other people at their most vulnerable moments.

When you really need help, people will respond. Sincerity means dropping the image facade and showing a willingness to be vulnerable. Tell it the way it is, lumps and all. Dont worry if your presentation isnt perfect; ask from your heart. Keep it simple, and people will open up to you.
