Finally a TV Star!
So this is what it’s like to put your life on the screen.
Funny, every time I was on stage (usually in NJ) I never had to think twice about what I’d say or what my motivation was. Up there I really was Wonder Woman I was able to converse about anything and everything. I do believe that that time in Community Theatre was some of the best in my life.
My husband Roy and our dog Stevie are usually the only audience I have now.
And that’s enough for me. I may be “retired” but inside the fire to perform and get immediate feedback never seems to go away. It’s not the overpowering urge I had when I was younger but it’s there.
Costumes are still a huge part of my life
Not in the way that you may think (although Roy does appreciate it from time to time in the privacy of our privacy). =)
Both Roy and I are huge fans of Halloween and he always has said to me that one of the things about me that is different is I love scary movies. As well as the chick flick (of course).
I always like to have a little flair a bit of me that usually is marching to a different drummer. Be it a bow in the hair, a pair of Jackie-O sunglasses in my favorite color, or really whatever strikes my fancy when I wake up. I have to be me.
If there was one thing that I can take with me from my time on the stage its that being yourself can be the most interesting person you can be. You may play Hamlet, Dorothy, or Winnie The Poo but when it comes right down to it just exploring and accepting who you are is really the greatest adventure.
That wasn’t so hard. Until next time my faithful readers, or reader, stay happy.
