Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

From Reel to Real!

Actor, Mask, Theater, Performance, Comedy, Theatrical

As an actor, my career spanned decades

with many characters portrayed on screen.

Some I molded into seamlessly,

others tested my abilities intensely.

A few, I am proud to have essayed

while regrets defined others.

I grew…

as strands of yarn from every script nested into my thoughts,

crocheting patterns into my core.

Their fragrance wafted into my breath,

slivers of joy and sorrow, filled in my emotional palette.

A fragment from each portrayal, scripted my growth…

I grew from a reel actor to a real human!

    All of us are real actors
    All of us are humans
    Some talented ones
    Become reel actors (you one of them?)
    Real or Reel
    We are always acting 🎭

    Wow! A colourful career. I graced the boards too, at times, and you are right, we discover so many traces of a self.

    Beautiful and excellent poem of our Reel life and when we realize our true nature then we understand our Real life. Loved the picture too, Radhika.

    This could be the foundation of a great script I think Radhika! Your poem is great and could lay the basis of a great character sketch in a movie. I can almost picture the actor who starts believing and living the roles he essayed!

    Life does feel like a series in which we play our role, actually multiple roles that keep evolving. Until we are able to fully express our true nature and live integrated and serving a purpose. Beautiful poem Radhika bringing out this reality.
