oldie Hawn once observed that there are only three
ages for an actress in Hollywood: "Babe, D.A., and
Driving Miss Daisy." She was making a different point, but
the truth remains: As artists we serve the Muse, and the Muse
may have more than one job for us over our lifetime.
The professional does not permit himself to
become hidebound within one incarnation, however
comfortable or successful. Like a transmigrating
soul, he shucks his outworn body and dons a new
one. He continues his journey.
