This blog consist of my original art that I have created. If I do post something that I have not created, I post the original source with it.
Some people think that I'm a fast talker when in reality they just listen slowly. Also, I think I was a cloud in a past life. xx
"Bait the hook well; this fish will bite." -Shakespeare (Much Ado About Nothing)
I hear the sounds of whispers backstage as I walk across the wing. Getting into position and reminding myself not to wipe the sweat of my forehead for the possibility of rubbing my make up off. As I look down at my hands, I notice the little scrapes and bruises from sewing costumes and painting backdrops. Each scratch holds a memory of a long night I dedicated myself fully to my art. As I prepare to bare my soul to a group of complete strangers, I feel it. I feel the adrenaline pumping through my veins; the excitement of escaping reality even if it’s only for a little while. Reminding myself that I only have one minute to change costumes in between two songs and knowing that it could all go wrong, or all go so right. Performing is an instinct, as soon as I am even near a stage the switch goes on and I am not who I use to be. That is the beauty and art of why I want to be an actor.
As a performer goes up and down the mountain of success and rejection it’s important to keep in mind that feeling. Performing artist need to remember why they wanted to be an actor, singer, and all around performer in the first place; through all the downs and rejection it’s important to remember your roots. To never stop watering the seed that started it all. Even if you’re working a five dollar an hour job and only being a part time actor, as long as you are alive in your art and happy then you are successful no matter what.
