Denise talks with the Make Meaning Movement founder Lynne Golodner. The Make Meaning Podcast launched in 2018, but its origins began more than two decades earlier, when Lynne  began writing about how people find meaning in the mundane.

An award-winning journalist, Fulbright Specialist, author and poet, Lynne was particularly fascinated by stories of how people bounce back from tragedy and discover life-affirming fascination and joy in unexpected places. She wrote about a mother gardening lavender as a way to recover from her daughter’s tragic death. She wrote about how the smooth strokes of sunrise-drenched rowers can be an invigorating way to begin a new day. She wrote about the rebirth of her beloved Detroit and how bread is a unifying element connecting all communities.

During these rough times of pandemic self-isolation and coronavirus fear, our friend Patti Londre suggested she entertain us with something really different – how to be an actor with no talent required. Of course, right now, everything is on hold. But let’s talk about what Background Acting has entailed in the past and what direction it may be headed in when production starts up again.

Patti has been a business owner and entrepreneur throughout her career. She ran a successful boutique public relations agency for 25 years, retired from that and then reinvented herself in the early days of blogging by creating one of the first national conferences for food bloggers. She dallied in being fully retired for at least a dozen years, and during that time had a lot of fun in an evolving array of Hobby Jobs (also known as being a volunteer). When a fashion photographer suggested she look into silver modeling (as in shiny gray-haired lady), her ego fluffed up again. That panned out to zero but lead her to a VERY LA job…background acting in TV series, movies and commercials!
