ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Geoffrey Zimmerman personifies the quintessential writer. Some ask, Do writers undertake risky, dangerous, moving experiences in order to write about and share them - or is a writer essentially an experiencer, observer, documentor of life's events and experiences? - sensitive to human emotion, nuance, trial and diversity, alert to subject matter ripe for sharing with readers.
OR
Do writers become writers out of the need to share moving and universal experiences with others? Feeling somehow removed or cutoff from the common man - who has no reality on the power and scope of human existence? Is it that we must reach out - in an attempt to broaden our own scope, in an effort, (so that we may) reach those unseen hearts and minds,( in which we are not in communion on a daily basis) that can relate, can understand, the impact of experiencing the emotional power inherent in life's limitless possibilities?
I believe I am both, (or all three). Since I was young, I have undertaken to share with others my ideas, thoughts, feelings and experiences.
I view life as a gift, a "project", something we are presented with that must not only be endured, suffered, seen through to the end - but relished, tested, pushed, prodded, played with, truly experienced with feeling - and shared.
I'm romantic, sensitive, dramatic. I need to share. I'm observant, driven by human experience. I was brought up by an actress for a mother. I'm educated, intelligent, descriptive. I pay attention to detail. I have been involved with motion pictures, (screenplays), television,( teleplays), and theatre, (scripts), my whole life. I want to make people laugh, cry, think, move, become inspired.
It is the robots and sellouts I disdain. Those who can cast aside their true selves for something they are led to believe or are shown from others.
It is the poet, singer, artist, adventurer, actor, builder, wanderer, searcher that I respect - for these people have come to realize the value of emotions, sense and experience.
