I just had just finished reading The Diary of Emily Dickinson--which is actually a work of fiction by Jamie Fuller. I really liked the book. Then, coincidentally, I had the opportunity to attend a readers' theater production that featured the poetry of Emily Dickinson. What a treat that was! There were four readers--two narrators and two who took the role of Emily. It was thoroughly enjoyable, but I have to say I learned a real appreciation for those who are true professionals in their field. Two of the women were professional actors. What they brought to the whole experience was beyond my powers of description. I did not watch the Oscar awards last night, but I did gain a fuller comprehension of what it means to be a professional actor.
