As an actor, which I have been in the past (a long time in the past), I find it is much easier to appear on stage as a character in a play than it is to be onstage as yourself - saying lines you wrote, about yourself, as yourself. I have new respect for those who can do that, though it would appear there aren't many who actually DO that.
Today, there was 15 of us. They were GREAT.
LYTM was a rousing, smashing success. It's late. I am done in. I will post more about this tomorrow evening.
