I wonder this sometimes, "What kind of person has nothing better to do than to insult random people on the internet?"
If you watch a live theater performance, do you think that what you see on the stage from an actor is his or her real life personality? I should hope not. Why, then, would someone assume a small representation of my writing represents my entire personality and life? Without ever having met me and spent quality time with me, I say you are far removed from the truth.
I write in this format to share thoughts and goings-on with my friends, family, other loved ones, or anyone who comes across the information and feels it resonating with them.
More recently, I've only been writing about theater, as I can do that with an element of displacement. Why? There are some nasty strangers out there. Strangers who want to destroy my self-worth and personal life. I've thought over and again, "It's not worth a personal attack." I fiercely love my people and that kind of love also brings about a fierce sensitivity.
I've decided that I'd rather write than cower. The thoughts I receive from love far outnumber those from hate. Hopefully I'll have more stories for you soon...like...maybe...the engagement?!
