Crafting Gentleness

[Sooz: Enough understanding, enough thought, enough speech, enough action]

I was deeply moved by William H. Macy on Inside the Actors Studio one day. As an actor he isn't well known for taking on emotionally effusive parts, but he got very emotional, speaking with a barely veiled anger, in a spirit of enthusiastic and almost embittered indignation, saying what one of his teachers had told him that he felt all young actors needed to hear:

"You are sufficient!!"

It felt to me like he was also shouting to the world in a spirit of transformation, "It doesn't have to be this way!"
