The World Is An Audience...

Shakespeare once said all the world's a stage, but as author R.Z. Sheppard said “As a born actress, she instinctively understands that the world is more than a stage-it is an audience." As an actresses, this quote sums up my life. Everywhere I go I seem to put on a show, so now I've decided to document my acting adventures, struggles and let the world see more than just a performer.

Rest in Peace Robin Williams.

ZELDA’S MOVING TRIBUTE TO HER DAD ROBIN: ‘ONE OF THE KINDEST, MOST GENEROUS, GENTLEST SOULS I’VE EVER KNOWN’

'My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone,…

Today I spent the day watching Robin Williams movies. There is one movie in particular that is a highly underrated children’s movie: JACK, as I was watching it a character said something quite moving- it had me in tears.
"You were a shooting star among ordinary stars. It’s wonderful and passes quickly, but while its here it lights up the whole sky, so beautiful in fact that the other stars, well they just stop to watch."
I was just sitting in stunned silence with how fitting those words were in this particular case with this same man years later. I know we’ve heard a lot about Robin in the past week, but he like so many others suffer with chronic mental illness and the discussion around it needs to keep happening. End the stigma and help the people around you by learning more, helping more and loving more.

"There were so many ghosts in our house—the ghost of my brother, the ghosts of my father’s war, the ghosts of my sister’s voices. And I thought that maybe there were ghosts inside of me that I hadn’t even met yet. They were there. Lying in wait."

THE DANCER

The Dancer has direct communication with God, much like a personal phone line. The telephone she uses is her body and she dials by dancing. As such, her dancing is a very, very sensual thing.

In the past, whenever she went out dancing, she got hit on and hit on and hit on. She didn’t like this at all. She hated it. It wasn’t what she was trying to do. She just wanted to talk to God. She almost gave up dancing altogether. Then she got an idea.

Now, just before she goes dancing, the Dancer straddles a photocopier and makes copies of her vagina. When guys come up and hit on her, she just hands them a copy.

"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak.
Not to act is to act." 

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (via quotes-shape-us)


"While I can’t have you, I long for you. I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close." 

Jeanette Winterson (via amandaonwriting)


"Did he find that one last tender place to sink his teeth in?
