I was once asked, “What makes you happy?” I had no answer. I hadn’t really ever thought about it. Then, four years ago, something happened. I realized I had lost my identity as an actress. Teaching for so many years and only acting sporadically, I wondered if I could still act. I decided to take an acting class. Getting back on the floor was terrifying and risky but I loved it and immediately felt at one with my students. I also realized that had I not started acting again, I would have had to stop teaching. I found that my total engagement in the process made me happier than I had been in a very long time. The acting class is the place where we, as students, honor humanity through the stories we tell.

Aren’t we lucky?
