I was once asked, “What makes you happy?” I had no real answer. Two years ago, 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. However, I found that my total engagement in the process made me happier than I had been in a very long time. I also realized that had I not become one with my students, I would really have had to stop teaching! The acting class is the place where we, as students, honor humanity - patience, practice and persistence get us through the stories we tell.

Aren’t we lucky?
