So, I have to say that I really do enjoy acting. As the opening of a new show arrives, something stirs in me that I find exciting and invigorating because all the hard word that my compatriots and I have put forth is about to be rewarded. All the blood, sweat, and broken glass will be forgotten as the crowd begins to cheer and the adrenaline begins to pump.

Some people talk about the runners high (and I have no doubt that it exists), but I believe in an acting high. There is just nothing quite like being in front of a live crowd pulling off their energy and putting it back out  ten-fold. I love doing it. Like I said, there is nothing quite like it because every show is different and every night is a new experience.

I joke around when I’m in productions by saying that I’m an Act-whore…however, it’s fairly true. I will be in practically any show (there are some I won’t touch but let’s face it everyone has standards…), will expose my raw self to the audience, and will hope to have left everyone feeling satisfied in the end.

Love

Love

A clash of Promethean heat,
War of ancient time is fought
Between these woolen sheets.

Drops of sweet
Sweat, something unable to be taught
Until we two meet.

Cool hands, warm feet,
Bodies twisted, sin stained lot,
Compounded in a secret place, lies discreet.

But now the sleet
Has come and chills what’s sought,
And we don’t meet.

No more saccharinely sweet
Moments of being caught
Unaware of our conceit.

We held our time in sheets;
In each firefly we caught,
But the years are fleet.
Eternity is where we shall meet.
