Creative types. Intellectual types. The been-in-trouble types... especially those I want to come to the rescue for.
This was part of a conversation I had this weekend with a couple of creative types.
Something about living and doing your passion, showing some (book)smarts, and being a little rough around the edges -- however that's defined -- and I'm hooked.
Kinda came about because of a few events I attended or participated in this weekend.
Met some actors, writers, and filmmakers... people living and doing their passion. And though I did NOT meet Jake Gyllenhaal this weekend, I was thoroughly impressed with his smarts on Oprah last week... he seems totally socially conscious to me (especially his thoughts on how women are objectified in film). And as for trouble and rough around the edges... I'll plead the fifth on this right now.
But back to the creative type conversation... we couldn't quite figure out our similarities in the things that make us vulnerable to another person. And something about that creative drive and energy and process is a magnet.
Not in a groupie kinda way. But obviously in a way that makes certain actors fall for their co-stars, or writers fall for each other, or whatever the profession. I guess when you're doing what you love, and you see others doing what they love, something happens...
Don't know why I'm sharing. But I'm sure some of you know exactly what I'm talking about, because maybe you fall for the same things too.
