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.
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!
