For the Locker: Maggie Gyllenhaal on Performing Ourselves

There are a number of reasons my blog posts have been sporadic lately. I've been wrestling with demons, and that takes up a lot of time and head space. It's tough to blog in the face of that.

So here's a little snippet for the locker. It's from an interview TIME Magazine did with Maggie Gyllenhaal.

"I relate to panic sometimes. One of the things that's happening to [my character] is that she's going from being somebody who performs all the time and feels that she has to be extraordinary to somebody is actually a human being. [...] I think it's something all human beings can relate to---performing themselves, thinking they're supposed to be what they imagined they were going to be when they were 20."

I found it comforting. I hope you do as well.
