I took this solo road trip during Christmas week for two reasons. One: I’ve been struggling with depression for the last couple of months and feeling lost and alone, so I thought I might as well head out to the desert in a place where I really was lost and alone. And two: I figured this would be a good time to unplug, decompress and try to recover from burnout. This trip made me see that while you don’t always get what you want, you seem to get what you need.
On January 4, 2017 I made an agreement with myself to run at least one mile every single day for a full year. Why one daily mile? I figured if I couldn’t spare ten minutes every day, I had a pretty fucked up life. But more importantly, I wanted to see what I could accomplish if I refused to accept my own built-in limitations.
I love a good story because it gives us the opportunity to see the world through someone else’s eyes and connect with that person, no matter how different they may be from us, and this interview with Kamal Moummad by Melissa Rebronja does just that. Kamal tells his story about acting, peace, being American, and much more.
