There is an old expression that goes, “May you live in interesting times.” Thanks to the pandemic, we are living in very interesting times. This has impacted the world of entertainment in serious ways. Practically all production has shut down. We can’t even go to the movies or to a play. On top of this, many people have lost their day jobs for the time being and possibly for good. What is an entertainment professional to do during this difficult period?
If you have time on your hands as a result of the pandemic, this is the time you can work on your craft. If you are an actor, you may not be able to work or even practice with your actor friends, but nothing can stop you from downloading scenes from the internet and putting yourself on tape. You can watch great performances and analyze them. You can watch videos of acting teachers and actors talking about the craft.
If you are a writer with time on your hands, you can write. Indeed, a lack of time and focus is a major problem for writers. It was the great writer Ernest Hemingway who said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit at the typewriter and bleed.” Now you have the time to bleed; you just need the determination.
If you are a producer, you may not be able to attend meetings, but you can still call people on the telephone. You can still plan and try to put deals together. In the end, no matter what your job is in the industry, you may not be able to perform it for money, but you can definitely work on your skills and keep them sharp for when entertainment production comes back, which I am confident it will.
If you are one of the lucky ones who is still working at your day job or even blessed with more work during the pandemic, thank your lucky stars. However, sometimes this blessing can take you away from your dream. Thus, always try to do something entertainment related. If you have acting dreams, you may be too busy to spend hours studying acting techniques, but perhaps you can take a couple of minutes to perform a scene or monologue in front of a camera. If you are a writer, maybe you can write one page a day, or half a page, or even a couple of lines. If you are a producer, you can make one call each day. In the end, do something, no matter how small it is, to make sure you are still focused on your dream.
Sadly, we are faced with a situation that none of us have seen before, but I think if we take care of ourselves and look out for each other, we will come back better than ever. Although things look bad now, let us never forget the words of another saying: “This too shall pass.”

Eating Healthy= Feeling Good
Tofu Fried Rice:
Extra firm tofu
Healthy veggie mix
***can use regular soy sauce in place of coconut and liquid aminos***
Cut up and season the Tofu with sesame oil, spices, garlic, coconut Aminos garlic sauce. Let it marinate a few hours if you have the time. Bake the tofu in the oven until desired consistency. I like mine firm, so I cook it for around 30 minutes.
Saute veggies mix, onions, mushrooms, garlic and spices with the Sunflower oil, and a little more sesame oil. Add cooked rice to the veggies and continue to saute. Add more seasoning to taste. When tofu is done, mix it into the rice and veggie mix, and stir fry them all together.
