Friendship, sexuality, moving on and laughing among many other things discussed will remind you how integral your own friendships are.
It would have been difficult for me to drill down what to spend time talking to Joseph about but he was unwavering. Friendship. With everything he’s done in his life – from writing, producing and acting in productions, to literacy and money management with foster kids, to travelling the world, being a parent and on and on – we could have discussed a ton of different things. To Joseph friendship has been one of the more important journeys in his life and for his willingness to share, I am grateful.
