The Reframery

The Reframery

Note To Self.

The framing shop in the shire is closed. Now is the time to think differently.

Now is the time to start a “reframery”.

As Aragorn (played by Viggo Mortensen) in the Lord of the Rings says, “there is always hope”. Or, to quote another great Dane, “there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”

So I see your 6 months of cancelled work. You, and thousands of others. And I raise you these 6 choices from your newly opened reframing shop;

1) You are a resting actor. Think Midsomer Murders. Mustard chords. Dies before the second ad break. Work on your health, rest, call your agent. Hell, get an agent. Know that the phone will ring again.

2) This is a dry spell. The rain will be back. In the meantime, conserve water.

3) You didn’t ask for a sabbatical. But here it is. Enjoy it.

4) This is a drought. You must find new ways to survive. Prepare to leave the shire. This is more than a dry spell- you need to do different things.

5) You are Tom Good (played by Richard Briers) in the Good Life. Embrace this new life. Don’t look back. Plant some radishes.

6) This is a blank sheet. Begin again. Think about all of the new things you can create and do.

The shops will open again. In the meantime, open your mind and get reframing.
