Zella Day | East of Eden

Pink toes press against the carpet
Show your face and finish what you started
The record spins,
Down the alley, late night
Be my friend, surround me like a satellite

‘’An actor must interpret life and, in order to do so, must be willing to accept all the experiences life has to offer. In fact, he must seek out more of life than life puts at his feet. In the short span of his lifetime, an actor must learn all there is to know, experience all there is to experience, or approach that state as closely as possible. He must be superhuman in his efforts to store away in the core of his subconscious everything that he might be called upon to use in the expression of his art.‘‘
