“Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.”-Katherine Mansfield
...and the good news of the day IS....(drumroll please) - I got the part. Which just goes to show that if you are willing to get out there and try things and risk making an ass of yourself - it may just pay off. I think a lot of things in life are like that. The willingness to leap headfirst is an underrated virtue. When I do a catalog of the best memories of my life the ones that bring the most joy, are the most vivid and make me feel the most satisfied are the ones in which I took a risk, did something outside my comfort zone, leapt wildly into an experience.
I think being back on stage will be a wonderful adventure.
