I embarked on a fun project a few years ago for Clemson University’s “Tri-Art” program, an outreach initiative to bring the three performance arts (drama, dance and music) into local schools. The client wanted one character that somehow represented all three disciplines, so I created a little girl who wants to do it all. Striking a fearless pose that begs to be in the spotlight, center stage.
We all know her. Weren’t all us girls her at some point in our life?
Fearless-ness. That’s what I’m aiming for. That childlike attitude that I can be anything….still…at my age. That although my “education” is behind me, I will always be learning. And if I’m learning, I’m growing. And if I’m still growing, then every day I’m more and more like that child I remember.
