The World’s a Stage
February 18, 2009 Leave a comment
Living life has been described in a variety of ways, like, “We’re all just actors on a stage” – or – “Welcome to Spaceship Earth”. Fate and Karma are tossed into conversations and followed by shrugs. There are specific secrets to living the life of your dreams and every year or two someone shares theirs with a big splash. It’s big business to figure out the meaning of life.
Marc Acito, an author/friend has explained on NPR’s All Things Considered, The World of Opera. Marc is a humorist with professional experience in Opera and Theater so he knows what he’s talking about. He and I also share connections with New Jersey, ’80’s hairstyles and Musical Theater. After finding his first book, HOW I PAID FOR COLLEGE, so entertaining, I was thrilled by his second book, ATTACK OF THE THEATER PEOPLE. Seriously, in the world of fiction, there are many authors who are one-book-wonders, and crash and burn soon after.
With luck, the world of publishing will not implode and someday I’ll be reading Marc’s third book, THE JAZZ HANDS OF GOD. He’s also written a play HOLIDAZED, that was performed to rave reviews by the Artists Repertory Theater in Portland. During 2008, Marc vowed to do something new every day and blog about it, to be accountable. I believe that daily blog will be a motivational book someday.
What is Marc’s answer to living the life of your dreams? Laughter, music, friends, family and embracing all the fun of life.
