GRATITUDE FOR MORNING PAGES

GRATITUDE FOR MORNING PAGES By: Dion Flynn “Let it flow, let yourself go.” The Beastie Boys, Slow And Low 1986 Today I want to express gratitude for Julia Cameron. Her book, The Artist’s Way, changed my life. Back in 1998 Julia Cameron’s book told me to write three pages every morning. Her instruction ran along these lines: Write whatever comes out. Don’t stop. Don’t judge. Let it flow. No matter…

What’s the story here?

Fri, 11 Sep 2015
Why did I spend my Artist’s Way artist’s date at the New York City 9/11 memorial?  Why does anyone go there? I’m not asking rhetorically to underscore that I don’t think anyone should go. I’m sharing the question that popped into my head at 2:25pm that day, after standing in line 10 minutes waiting for the 2:30pm estimated entry-time stamped on my ticket. What was I expecting? My cartoonist’s…

Director

Dion directed and helped develop PJ Walsh's award-winning solo show: "Over There".
Dion directed and helped develop Tim Heath Leuzarder in his amazing solo show: "Mentorized".
Dion also directed "The Last Good Girl" and "Dear, Oprah..." and his own solo shows: "Unboozeming The Clown" and "How To Forgive The World...And By 'The World' I Mean Your Mother". All were solo shows in New York City .
Dion co-directed the comedy stage show "Clanging With Josh And Dion" with How I Met Your Mother star: Josh Radnor.
Comedy

Dion has done stand-up comedy all over New York City and in the Republic of Korea while on tour as a soldier in the Army.

Public Speaking

Dion is an awarding-winning public speaker, winning the District trophy for best speech as a member of the New York City branch of Toastmasters International.

Dion has helped many clients improve and prepare for their public speeches, presentations and acting auditions.
Life Coach

Growing up as the Only Brown Kid In The Trailer park, gave Dion a particularly keen insight into human nature. He has translated this (and his metaphysical studies) into some equally keen character portrayals . However, did you know that Dion was also a Life Coach for 7 years. A very successful one. Which he thinks is funny since the title Life Coach sounds like you're someone who knows how everybody else should run their lives. No...that's not what it means. Life Coaches and Actors do the same thing: hold mirrors up to nature.
