A lot of my stories about the old days, they’re delicious and funny. But every time I recall the early days, it’s painful.

When something happens far back in the past, people often can’t recall exact details. Blame depends upon point of view. There may be a villain, but reality is frustrating because it’s often ambiguous.

I recall the magic being on set for season one of ‘Transparent.’ The trans inclusivity of our set was unparalleled at the time.

To see you naked is to recall the Earth.
I’m really not thick-skinned – my wife will tell you that I take sunsets personally – but I know that I’ve got the belly for whatever comes down the pike. I think it’s tenacity. You’ve been there before, and you just have to recall, ‘How did I handle that one?’
The human brain now holds the key to our future. We have to recall the image of the planet from outer space: a single entity in which air, water, and continents are interconnected. That is our home.

I can’t help but recall my dad and mom. Depression era kids, 8th and 9th grade educations, clawed and scratched to make a living as dairy farmers their whole life. At least two drought cycles nearly took it all away. They just worked harder, longer… and they made it.
Under the administration of George W. Bush, you will recall, federal spending grew pretty significantly. At the same time, the number of people directly employed by the federal government shrank. One of the factors that explained the difference was contracting.

I can recall back in 1998, in August of that year, when we had a horrible disaster along the Mexican border in the town of Del Rio. At the time, FEMA was the shining star of the federal government.

Recall when the Congress-led government was in power; then-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had talked about who had rights to the country’s resources.

I never really got nightmares from movies. In fact, I recall my father saying when I was three years old that I would be scared, but I never was.

There was an exhibition in Munich in 1937, ‘Degenerate Art,’ which included work by Klee, Kandinsky, Beckmann and many others. The work was called ‘sick’ and put in the trash heap.

My military experience… I can recall so many different emotions from that.
I think I’m learning how to release every day. Recognizing that everything you encounter, touch, or love can become part of you, and in essence never disappears, as long as you can recall it to memory or heart. It’s all so connected that we lose everything, but also, we never lose anything.
I have pictures of my grandmother from the 1920s and ’30s in avant-garde dresses that looked like they could have come from the House of Worth or Lucien Lelong. She would never say if they were couture, but I do recall her telling me, ‘All my clothes and shoes came from Paris.’

What I strive to do is to make the theater experience something that people remember and recall rather than dismiss because it was less like their everyday experiences.

As an adolescent, I went to charm school, where I learned to pour tea and relate to boys, which, as I recall, meant giving them the pickle jar to unscrew, whether it was too hard for me or not.
